Mayer Brown’s Supreme Court & Appellate Practice Named to National Law Journal’s “Appellate Hot List”

5 April 2010 – Mayer Brown LLP, a leading global law firm,  announced that its Supreme Court & Appellate practice has been named as one of the best in the country by a leading legal publication.

In the third annual edition of its prestigious “Appellate Hot List,” the National Law Journal (NLJ) recognized Mayer Brown among the law firms with stellar records in appellate advocacy. The NLJ noted in the article from the April 5 issue that the Appellate Hot List “denotes law firms that made singular contributions to appellate practice during the past year.” Mayer Brown has been selected to the Appellate Hot List in each of the three years the NLJ has compiled the list. 

In its overview of Mayer Brown's accomplishments, the NLJ focused on the firm’s extensive track record of arguments before the Supreme Court, including eight in 2008 and 2009. The publication also highlighted three of the firm's most significant wins from the past year:CSX Transportation Inc. v. Hensley; Polar Tankers Inc. v. City of Valdez; and Volvo Cars of North America LLC v. U.S. 

The lawyers of Mayer Brown's Supreme Court & Appellate practice have argued 218 cases before the Supreme Court and hundreds more in federal and state appellate courts across the nation. Client representations include briefing and arguing cases on the merits, petitioning for and opposing certiorari, submitting amicus briefs in cases that affect clients' interests, and assisting the firm's trial practices with pre- and post-trial motion support.
