Several Jenner & Block partners are among Lawdragon’s “500 Leading Lawyers in America” for 2012. 

Partner Joseph P. Gromacki, who is chair of Jenner & Block’s firmwide Corporate Practice and oversees all of the firm’s transactional practices, was selected in Lawdragon’s Mergers and Acquisitions practice area; Partner Terri L. Mascherin was named for Litigation; Partner Paul M. Smith, chair of the firm’s Appellate and Supreme Court Practice, was recognized in the Appellate practice area; and firm Chairman Anton R. Valukas was included in Lawdragon’s Litigation, White Collar practice area.

In its recent announcement of the list, Lawdragon noted that these leading lawyers are “counselors who won the biggest verdicts and pulled off the biggest deals.”  They were chosen through an “intense vetting process in which more than 25,000 lawyers were considered.” 

The 500 attorneys will be featured in a special issue of Lawdragon’s magazine, due for release later this year.
