Sixty-six Jenner & Block attorneys were recently selected for inclusion in Illinois Super Lawyers in its 2013 guide to the “top 5 percent of attorneys” in the state.  In addition, the publication recognized 27 attorneys as “Rising Stars.”

The list, which will be published in the February 2013 issue of Illinois Super Lawyers magazine, recognizes attorneys through a comprehensive, peer-review-based evaluation process, which includes surveying thousands of attorneys and asking them to nominate the best attorneys they have personally observed in action. “Rising Stars” are the top 2.5 percent of attorneys in the state who are 40 years old or younger or who have been practicing for 10 years or less.

Partners Joseph G. Bisceglia, Bradford P. Lyerla, Harry J. Roper and Anton R. Valukas are listed among “The Top 100 Illinois Super Lawyers 2013,” which consists of lawyers who received the highest point totals in the balloting, research and blue ribbon review process.
