Eileen Penner concentrates her practice on appellate litigation. Prior to
joining Mayer Brown, she worked in the Civil Rights Division at the US
Department of Justice, first as a trial attorney in the Housing and Civil
Enforcement Section (1989-1996), then as an appellate attorney in the Appellate
Section (1994-1996). She also served as a Law Clerk to The Honorable Dorothy W.
Nelson, US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit (1988-1989).
Eileen was named among the "Forty Under 40," a list of America's most
successful young litigators, in which she was recognized as "an appellate
attorney who has prevailed in every case she has argued in private practice" (National
Law Journal, August 2002).
Eileen Penner is a co-author of Mayer Brown's Federal Appellate Practice treatise, published by BNA Books in December 2008.
