Appellate Lawyers

Michael B. Kimberly

Washington D.C.

Michael Kimberly, a partner in Mayer Brown’s acclaimed Supreme Court & appellate practice, briefs and argues complex appeals and dispositive motions with primary focus on the antitrust laws, environmental law, and constitutional law. He has argued over a dozen appeals in courts throughout the country, including the United States Supreme Court, the Second, Fourth, Sixth, Seventh, Eighth, and Ninth Circuits, and en banc sittings of the Second and Eleventh Circuits. Michael has written and filed over 200 briefs in the Supreme Court and all thirteen federal courts of appeals.

Michael has been described by The Washington Post as a “seasoned Supreme Court practitioner” (2015), and according to Reuters (2014), Michael is among “a small cluster of specialists” and “the top handful of lawyers in America” who “dominate” the High Court docket. Michael’s work before the Supreme Court has also earned him recognition in The National Law Journal‘s Appellate Hot List.

Michael co-directs the Yale Law School Supreme Court Clinic, which represents civil rights, immigrant, and criminal defense litigants before the U.S. Supreme Court.
