Jenner & Block’s International Arbitration Practice and four firm attorneys have been recognized in the 2013 edition of Chambers Global

The International Arbitration Practice’s Co-chairs Lawrence S. Schaner and Richard F. Ziegler are two of the individual attorneys selected for recognition.  In addition, firm Chairman Anton R. Valukas was included in the directory’s Litigation: Trial Lawyers category, and Thomas P. Sullivan was ranked as a Senior Statesman in the Litigation: Trial Lawyers category.

Chambers Global has been identifying leading lawyers and law firms with truly international practices since 1999. 

Chambers wrote that Mr. Schaner is "highly regarded in the whole network of the international arbitration field" and serves as both counsel and arbitrator in a range of commercial cases.  The directory noted that Mr. Ziegler is "a superb advocate who is respectful of the process, of the international arbitrating tribunals and the opposition,” and is highly regarded for his advocacy capabilities and client-centered approach.  

The publication referred to Mr. Valukas as "one of the leaders of the Chicago legal community," with extensive experience in both general commercial and white-collar criminal matters, and wrote that Mr. Sullivan impresses with his extensive trial skills and has more than 55 years of litigation experience in civil and criminal matters.
