General Motors filed for its highly anticipated initial public offering on Wednesday, a little more than a year after the company emerged from bankruptcy. Jenner & Block and Davis Polk & Wardwell, two firms with longtime GM connections, will be handling the legal work on the offering, according to an SEC filing by the Detroit-based automaker.

Jenner corporate partners Joseph Gromacki, William Tolbert Jr., and Brian Boch are lead issuer’s counsel for the IPO.

The American Lawyer selected him as a Dealmaker of the Year in 2007 for his work advising Sam Zell on the $8.2 billion privatization of the Tribune Co.
