Law360 Recognizes Jenner & Block Partner Ishan K. Bhabha as Rising Star

Partner Ishan K. Bhabha has been named a 2019 Rising Star by Law360 in the Appellate category.  He joins 175 lawyers under the age of 40 “whose legal accomplishments transcend their age.”  The competition drew more than 1,300 submissions, with winners chosen based on their accomplishments in their respective practice areas.  The selected honorees represent more than 80 law firms across 39 different practice areas.  

In his profile, Mr. Bhabha calls his first argument before the Supreme Court last year as one of his biggest cases of his career.  “As an appellate lawyer, being up in front of the Supreme Court is sort of the absolute pinnacle in certain respects of what you want to be doing.”  Mr. Bhabha’s proudest moment as a lawyer was when he secured a pro bono victory for an inmate who was released from solitary confinement after more than a decade.  His advice to young lawyers:  “There is no alternative to just real focus and hard work on every single thing you do as a lawyer.  You never know when someone’s looking.”
