Jenner & Block’s Insurance Litigation and Counseling Practice won the Chambers USA Award for Excellence in Insurance (Policyholder), a prestigious honor that reflects a law firm’s “pre-eminence” and recognizes “outstanding work, impressive strategic growth and excellence in client service.”  In honoring the team as the country’s top Insurance (Policyholder) practice, Chambers USA noted its “powerful presence” and “prowess in sophisticated, high-stakes proceedings.”

“This is a testament to our strength as a practice group and as a firm,” said Practice Chair John H. Mathias, Jr.  “We are honored to receive this award, as we have all worked very hard to achieve and maintain the highest level of excellence in keeping with Jenner & Block’s overall national standards.  We look forward to an even stronger 2014.” 

“It is gratifying to have Chambers USA confirm what we already know: that our Insurance practice is a national powerhouse,” said Managing Partner Susan C. Levy.

The award was presented on May 23 before more than 500 guests at the seventh annual Chambers Awards for Excellence in New York. 

In addition to the Award for Excellence, the 2013 Chambers USA edition ranked Jenner & Block as a leading firm in 20 practice areas and recognized 40 partners as leaders in their respective practice areas.
