Thomas Perrelli, the co-chairman of Jenner & Block’s entertainment and new media practice, focuses his efforts on copyright and constitutional litigation. He is currently the lead appellate counsel for the legal team representing Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc. in MGM v. Grokster Ltd. before the U.S. Supreme Court. The case accuses Grokster, an Internet file-sharing service, of copyright infringement. He has asked the court to review the case and overturn the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals’ decision to allow file-sharing services to operate legally. Perrelli frequently represents recording companies such as Maverick Recording Co., Sony Corp. and Elektra Entertainment Group in copyright infringement cases. Perrelli also played a lead role in the highly publicized Terri Schiavo case, successfully representing Schiavo’s husband, Michael Schiavo. Perrelli was also involved in Vieth v. Jubelierer, a U.S. Supreme Court case involving partisan gerrymandering issues. Before joining Jenner & Block as a partner in 2001, Perrelli worked as deputy assistant attorney general at the U.S. Department of Justice, and was briefly counsel to Attorney General Janet Reno. During his tenure in the Justice Department, Perrelli led the tobacco litigation team in cases against cigarette manufacturers. Before working at DOJ, Perrelli was an associate at Jenner.
