Nine Jenner & Block Partners in the Washington, DC office were recently named to the Washington, DC Super Lawyers list, an annual guide to lawyers who “have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement.”

The 2011 honorees are:

  • David A. Churchill -- Government Contracts

  • David A. Handzo -- Business Litigation

Published in the May 2011 issue of Washington, DC Super Lawyers magazine, the list recognizes attorneys through a comprehensive, peer-review-based evaluation process, which includes surveying thousands of attorneys and asking them to nominate the best attorneys they had personally observed in action.  Nominees were scored based on the number of votes they received, with more weight given to votes from outside their own firm.
