U.S. Supreme Court Practice
Our appellate attorneys have significant experience in Supreme Court practice and regularly appear in the Supreme Court on a variety of matters. In the last Term alone, our group argued or submitted briefs or petitions in two dozen cases before the Court. In addition to representing litigants, we have also represented some of the nation’s most prominent business interests and trade associations on issues critical to business, including punitive damages, the scope of federal jurisdiction, and key constitutional issues.
Certiorari practice is fundamentally different from any other stage of litigation. We have unique insight into this specific practice area because of our extensive experience as advocates and the added, behind-the-scenes benefits of having clerked on that Court. Whether our clients are seeking or opposing review in the Supreme Court, we bring a special understanding to that effort and can craft briefs that take into account the unique processes and criteria the Court uses in deciding whether to grant certiorari. We also know the value of strategically placed amicus briefs and can work with clients to solicit amici for their own cases or to submit amicus briefs in cases in which they can add an important perspective for the Court’s consideration.
