Jenner & Block is a national law firm headquartered in Chicago and maintaining additional offices in New York, Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. The firm employs more than 50 lawyers focusing on intellectual property and is largely known for handling bet-the-company copyright litigation. "I think very highly of them and think they have a strong national footprint," said one leading U.S. copyright attorney. For two consecutive years, in 2010 and 2011, the firm was named "Copyright Firm of the Year" in Managing Intellectual Property Magazine.
Andrew Bart serves as co-chair of the firm's Content Media & Entertainment Practice and is frequently mentioned as one of the nation's top legal minds when it comes to issues involving copyright law, privacy and publicity. In the patent realm, Jenner & Block also maintains an active presence. The firm, in September 2012, achieved dismissal of a patent infringement suit filed against its client, Nissan, by a not-for-profit corporation asserting claims on three patents related to piston technology.
