About The Group

Mayer Brown's more than 60 appellate lawyers have argued approximately 200 cases before the Supreme Court--including ten in the three most recent Terms--as well as hundreds more in federal and state appellate courts across the nation.

We are ranked as the top appellate practice in the country by both Legal 500 United States and Chambers USA 2007. Each publication rates hundreds of firms in dozens of practice areas, from Antitrust to Wealth Management. In only one practice area--appellate law--did the two publications place the same practice--Mayer Brown's appellate practice--in a class by itself as the sole national leader.

  • Chambers USA observes that our group is "exceptionally strong across the board" and "has taken its reputation in appellate matters to great heights." It continues: "The group has built strong foundations in Washington, DC, Texas, and Illinois and the firm has been one of the first to move big-name appellate lawyers into its New York office."
  • According to Chambers, "[c]lients praise the [Mayer Brown] team for its 'quality, reputation and cost-effectiveness,' and appreciate that the attorneys always deliver 'the typical Mayer product. Their work is creative yet credible, very well thought out and very well written.'"
  • Legal 500 states that the firm's appellate practice has "genuine national coverage and, in the words of one client, "a reputation for expertise in appeals.' It is this depth of bench compared to its rivals that marks it out as a rock-solid top-tier player."

Members of the Supreme Court and Appellate Practice Group are based in Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, Palo Alto, and Washington, D.C.
