McDermott Recognized For Esteemed Supreme Court And Appellate Litigation Practice

Overview


McDermott Will & Emery, a leading international law firm, is proud to announce that its Supreme Court and Appellate Litigation practice has been named one of the best in the United States by The National Law Journal in its “2019 Appellate Hotlist.” This award highlights firms that have produced results in the highest-profile cases with cutting-edge appellate advocacy.

“We pride ourselves on going above and beyond for our clients and we are honored to have been recognized for the successful results we deliver,” said Paul Hughes, co-chair of the Firm’s Supreme Court and Appellate Practice Group.

“There is nothing more satisfying than achieving an outright victory that meets our client’s immediate need. Better still, securing a win on appeal often means securing lasting legal change that addresses the issue for generations to come,” added Michael Kimberly, practice group co-chair. “Our success in court comes from our collaboration and teamwork. Over the past decade, Paul and I have worked hand in hand to secure the best outcomes for our clients.”

Members of McDermott’s Supreme Court and Appellate Litigation team have presented arguments before the Supreme Court more than a dozen times, including in each of the Court’s last five Terms. The team has also argued in all 13 federal courts of appeals, as well as state appellate courts throughout the country. These appeals have involved a wide array of constitutional, statutory, and regulatory issues affecting antitrust, intellectual property, bankruptcy, employment and tax matters, among others.

The Supreme Court and Appellate Litigation practice will be recognized at an awards reception on Wednesday, October 30, 2019 at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C. You can view more information about the awards dinner here.
