What the team is known for

Maintains an excellent reputation for the depth and breadth of its appellate practice, calling upon an extensive roster of knowledgeable practitioners with numerous Supreme Court victories. Acts on a markedly broad caseload, with experience in appeals concerning governmental regulation, intellectual property, bankruptcy and constitutional law. Also able to draw upon the significant resources and specialties of this far-reaching global firm.

Strengths

Sources describe the group as "an army of resources ready to tackle the most cutting-edge legal issues."

One client enthuses: "They genuinely seem invested in their client and their client’s interests, rather than just the billable hour. That is a good foundation for a strong attorney-client relationship and, as a result, I would trust them to handle the most material and bet-the-company matters."

Commentators add: "The appellate teams are all former Supreme Court clerks and they work very well together, and they are masterful writers."

Work highlights

Acted for Chevron before the Ninth Circuit to affirm the dismissal of Anti-Terrorism Act and Alien Tort Statute claims brought by over 300 plaintiffs, alleging funds paid by the company to purchase Iraqi oil were used by Saddam Hussein for 'martyr payments' encouraging terrorist attacks in Israel.

Notable practitioners

Michael Carvin has a wealth of experience representing clients in the federal appeals courts and the Supreme Court. His practice is centered on constitutional and statutory challenges to government regulations.
