Richard Katskee is a member of the firm’s Supreme Court & Appellate practice whose connection to Mayer Brown goes back nearly 30 years. Journalist Lauri Lebo described Richard as “a First Amendment expert known for his encyclopedic knowledge and the engaging prose he brings to his legal briefs.” According to Pulitzer Prize-winning author Edward Humes, Richard’s “elegantly written briefs are legendary, veritable beach reading in a field better known for its ponderous prose.” Richard brings a wealth of litigation and regulatory experience across a wide range of issues, drawing on his service in government, the nonprofit sector, and the academy. Richard is also an experienced oral advocate who has argued cases before the US Supreme Court, the US Courts of Appeals for the Second, Third, Fifth, Sixth, Ninth, and D.C. Circuits, state appellate courts, and federal and state trial courts across the country.
