Jenner & Block is a destination law firm for complex litigation and sophisticated corporate transactional work. With more than a century of unrelenting client advocacy experience, Jenner & Block is trusted by clients around the world to handle sensitive, strategic and consequential matters. The firm is also known for its commitment to excellence and its extraordinary pro bono service. Jenner & Block has offices in Chicago, London, Los Angeles, New York, and Washington, D.C.

Litigation Practice

The firm’s litigation department comprises more than 400 litigators and disputes lawyers and differentiates itself through its deep experience and abiding commitment to excellence. Jenner & Block’s known reputation and trusted experience for board-level counsel, internal investigations, complex commercial disputes and arbitrations position the firm to handle its clients’ most significant matters. Clients entrust Jenner & Block with the responsibility to handle their most high-profile, complex and delicate litigation matters because the firm has built a team of distinguished trial lawyers, recognized for their principled and effective advocacy, with breadth, experience and sophistication across industries and issues.

Among its distinguished ranks, the firm counts 12 Fellows of the American College of Trial Lawyers, two former US attorneys, 10 former assistant US attorneys, a former Illinois Supreme Court chief justice, a former associate attorney general of the United States and a former Illinois solicitor general, among other highly experienced lawyers.

Jenner & Block’s unwavering commitment to pro bono service has produced a litigation workforce of the highest quality with greater trial experience than other firms, and has garnered recognition as the #1 pro bono firm in the United States for seven of the last 10 years (The American Lawyer).

A leader in litigation, Jenner & Block’s track record of victories is evidence of what it does best: tries cases and takes them to appeal. In the last two US Supreme Court terms, the Appellate and Supreme Court practice has had 12 merits cases, and achieved a perfect record in the 2015-16 term, winning seven cases. The firm’s undefeated winning streak in patent appeals in the Federal Circuit was also recognized as a “dominating” performance.

The firm’s best-in-class investigators are recognized for running complex domestic and international investigations. Their approach blends extraordinary preparation with a search for the truth and a clear and unbiased presentation of the facts to clients. The firm’s anticorruption practice represents multi-national companies in defending government investigations and in all phases of compliance with the FCPA, UK Bribery Act and other anticorruption laws, including developing internal controls, training, compliance, internal investigations and negotiations with governments.

The firm handles a wide range of cross-border disputes and commercial and investment arbitrations involving parties from multiple jurisdictions and spanning a diverse range of governing laws, claims and industries. Recent expansion into London allows the firm to provide direct access to the highest quality English law advice and amplifies its ability to assist clients worldwide in navigating disputes or investigations with a nexus to the UK or English law.

Rö: Orange solves disputes

Rö is a specialized dispute resolution firm, with extensive experience in conducting a wide range of high-stakes arbitration and litigation proceedings, including BIT.

Rö is a unique firm, whose founders set out to create the best Dispute Resolution practice in Warsaw. The concept came from their earlier experiences from working in some of Poland’s largest law firms. In doing so they are pursuing their own vision of how to best support clients, in which Rö's partners are directly engaged in the work on assignments. By doing so, they guarantee that the full range of the firm’s competencies is fully engaged, with effective information flow between teams at all times, as well as the highest level of service quality. The firm is continuously expanding its team, inviting the most talented and promising lawyers on the market to work with Rö.

The Rö Litigation team has earned a strong reputation for being extremely skilled, experienced and committed lawyers. They combine their legal excellence with a deep understanding of the key sectors of the Polish economy.

Rö lawyers’ recent cases have included representing a leading Polish construction company in a dispute related to the execution of large-scale infrastructure projects. They have also successfully acted for Volkswagen AG, in a case in which a district court in Warsaw rejected a class-action claim from users of cars with EA189 engines, citing a lack of jurisdiction. The firm was also part of Ampal’s winning legal team in its USD 1 billion-plus EMG case. Ongoing cases include, i.a., Poland’s largest bankruptcy proceedings, in which the firm is representing the interests of a government agency involved as a creditor.

As a specialized firm, Rö has developed a range of tailor-made services and best practices for more effective dispute resolution. Their innovative RöCognition service employs a team of respected psychologists from leading Warsaw academic institutions to examine the motivations of the key players in the dispute. This has created a useful tool to support clients in managing risk during disputes.

A significant number of court or arbitration proceedings can be resolved through settlement or a fast trial. Often obstacles are posed by the ambitions of the individuals engaged in the dispute, intercultural differences or communications difficulties arising from subjective feelings or personal motivations. Based on statements, case documents and behaviour, RöCognition builds psychological profiles and behavioural maps of the case participants. Next, an interdisciplinary team of lawyers and psychologists prepares scenarios for resolving the dispute, and argumentation that it tailor-made for its audience. As a result, the client receives the broadest possible analysis of the potential benefits and risks, and the best strategy to reach the settlement, or to effectively argue the case before the court or arbitration panel.

Clients recommend Rö for its business-orientated approach, as well as its effectiveness and responsiveness.

They report that the firm also provides more direct contact with partners and senior lawyers than most of its rivals. Clients often appoint Rö lawyers as strategic advisors in parallel to their work as a litigation team.

Chambers & Partners Europe 2018 recommends Rö in the category of Dispute Resolution. The firm and its lawyers have continuously won recognition in this prestigious ranking.
