For the 12th consecutive year, The National Law Journal has named Jenner & Block to its Appellate Hot List. “The firms tackled novel issues and undoubtedly overcame unprecedented challenges over the past year, boasting high-profile and high-stakes wins in the nation’s highest appellate courts,” The NLJ says of the firms on the list. Partner Ian Heath Gershengorn is featured in a companion piece to the report. He discusses the group’s US Supreme Court victory in McGirt, a groundbreaking decision in which the Court, by a 5-4 vote, held that the Muscogee (Creek) Nation’s reservation endures—which meant that the state of Oklahoma lacked jurisdiction to prosecute his client, Jimcy McGirt. “Collaboration and teamwork are the keys to success; we have an extraordinarily experienced team at Jenner & Block, and we make sure we tap into that broad range of knowledge and talent, rather than rely on one or two people to carry the load,” Mr. Gershengorn notes.
