THE APPELLATE HOT LIST

The National Law Journal

We asked our readers to nominate firms with stellar records in appellate advocacy, and the response was overwhelming. We received dozens of nominations for firms that really have been shaking things up. We looked for firms that scored at least one significant appellate win since February 2007, plus an impressive legacy overall. A "significant win" meant prevailing before the U.S. Supreme Court, a federal circuit court or a state court of last resort when the financial stakes were high or an important legal principle was at stake. The firms on this list contributed in meaningful ways to the most important appeals of the year, whether through drafting the main briefs, presenting oral arguments or as friends of the court.
