Arnold & Porter
In March, along with many in the legal community, Arnold & Porter celebrated the 50th anniversary of the landmark U.S. Supreme Court case Gideon v. Wainwright, which guaranteed legal representation for indigents in criminal cases. The fact that the court appointed Abe Fortas, one of the firm's founders, to represent Clarence Earl Gideon remains a point of pride, chairman Thomas Milch said.
