ABOUT THIS COMPANY:
Windy City Roots
The firm now known as Jenner & Block was founded in 1914 as Newman, Poppenhusen & Stern by a trio of lawyers with big-name Chicago firm pedigrees. In its early years, the firm advised the city’s banks, mortgage houses and blue-collar corporations. Once the 1920s roared around, however, Jenner & Block took on a decidedly more high-profile identity as litigator Edward Johnston developed into one of the nation’s foremost antitrust attorneys. With a victory in the landmark 1925 case of Maple Flooring Manufacturers Association v. United States, in which he dismantled the Justice Department’s argument that the exchange of information by trade association members constituted a violation of antitrust law, Johnston cemented the firm’s reputation in the practice.Become a Gold Member or Log in to read the entire Scoop
