Chambers USA Recognizes Jenner & Block Practices and Attorneys in 2008 Edition

Twenty-nine Jenner & Block partners and many of the Firm’s practice areas were recently featured in the 2008 edition of Chambers USA.

Chambers is a widely distributed directory that recognizes law firms and attorneys who according to their research have demonstrated “technical legal ability, professional conduct, client service, commercial astuteness, diligence, commitment” and other qualities valued by clients.  Chambers’ 2007 rankings are based on over 14,000 interviews with clients and other attorneys, and rely heavily on unprompted testimonials.

The below links reference Chambers’ commentary on Jenner & Block’s practices and partners that were featured in the publication. Also below is a list of the attorneys who were individually recognized in the publication, listed by practice area.

In March 2009, Chambers USA released the names of the Jenner & Block attorneys selected for the 2009 edition. Please click here for more information.
