Jenner & Block has a proud tradition of defending access to the ballot. For decades, we have represented voters, voting rights organizations, and elected officials in fighting to protect the right to vote. In keeping with that tradition, Co-Managing Partners Katya Jestin and Randy Mehrberg made the following statement in response to a wave of recent bills aimed at restricting access to voting in many US states:

“Equal access to voting is the foundation of democracy, and we strongly oppose discriminatory legislation designed to limit Americans’ ability to vote. We at Jenner & Block will continue to represent individuals and organizations who challenge illegal efforts to limit access to the ballot, and we will relentlessly advocate in the courts to safeguard the right to vote and to oppose efforts to impose unnecessary restrictions on voting.”
