Jenner & Block Partner Jeremy M. Creelan will join the Rockefeller Institute of Government as a visiting fellow, focusing his research on reform and social justice issues. The Nelson A. Rockefeller Institute of Government is the public policy research arm of the State University of New York. The Institute conducts fiscal and programmatic research on American state and local governments. "We are thrilled to have Jeremy joining our team here at the Rockefeller Institute as a visiting fellow," said Jim Malatras, president of the Rockefeller Institute of Government, in a statement. "His broad career as a policymaker, litigator, and advocate will be invaluable to drive evidence-based policymaking, especially in government reform and social justice."
Mr. Creelan is a highly experienced litigator who re-joined Jenner & Block as a partner in 2014 after serving for three years in the administration of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, first as special counsel for public integrity and ethics reform and then as special counsel to the governor. He is a partner in the firm’s Litigation Department and a member of the Complex Commercial Litigation and Government Controversies and Public Policy Litigation Practices. Mr. Creelan has authored significant reform legislation for the State of New York, prosecuted numerous voting rights cases and co-authored a landmark, comprehensive study of New York State's legislative process. In addition, from 2005-2007, he served as an adjunct professor at the NYU School of Law, where he taught election law.
