Jenner & Block Chair Craig C. Martin was named to the “40 Under Forty” list in 2001; at the time, he was a member of the firm’s Management Committee and the Chair of the firm’s Hiring Committee.  In January, at age 55, he became the youngest Chair in Jenner & Block’s history.  As the profile notes, he maintains an active caseload, recently arguing in the 7th and 9th Circuits as well as several major trials in the past year.  His travel-heavy role puts him frequently in the firm’s offices around the country and in London.  He also remains active with several charities, including Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago.  Responding to questions about his accomplishments, Mr. Martin explained that “It’s not about me, it’s about we. The truth is, I just stand on the shoulders of my partners.”
