Jenner & Block has been named as among the top law firms in the country in 23 practice areas on state and national levels, in the just-released 2014 edition of Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business.  Of these rankings, seven were Band 1 distinctions—Chambers’ highest level of recommendation—including for the firm’s esteemed Government Contracts Practice, which was recognized as a Band 1 practice for the first time.  In addition, 44 Jenner & Block partners received a total of 49 individual rankings.

Further, the firm also won the Chambers USA Award for Excellence in Media & Entertainment, presented May 22 at the ninth annual Awards for Excellence in New York.  These awards go beyond the rankings of Chambers USA, and “shine a spotlight on the firms and individuals that have excelled above all others in the US legal market over the period 2013-14.”

“Jenner & Block was founded on, and continues to be guided by, our unwillingness to compromise on quality.  We strive to exceed our clients’ expectations and live by the highest professional standards, so we are pleased that the market, and Chambers in particular, continue to recognize our tradition of excellence,” said Jenner & Block Managing Partner Terrence J. Truax.

Chambers USA is a prestigious and widely followed directory that recognizes law firms and attorneys.  Ranked firms and individuals must have demonstrated “technical legal ability, professional conduct, client service, commercial astuteness, diligence, commitment,” among other qualities most valued by clients and in-house counsel.  Chambers’ independent and objective rankings are based on thousands of in-depth, confidential and unattributed interviews with “a vast range” of lawyers and their clients.
