What the team is known for

Calls upon a robust group of respected appellate experts to offer broad strengths in an array of business law and wider constitutional disputes, with notable experience in areas such as competition law, insurance defense and intellectual property, among others. Acts for a diverse client base which spans a range of national and multinational corporates in industries including media and entertainment, financial services and energy.

Strengths

Clients say: "Their appellate practice is amazing and so is the quality of the team. They have a number of SCOTUS clerks and it's a talented and vibrant group. The value of working with them is immeasurable and their written work and oral advocacy is impeccable."

Other clients report: "They're great writers, responsive, they think strategically and see the big picture."

Interviewees praise the team for being "very responsive and very knowledgeable."

Work highlights

Successfully represented the Ford Motor Company in the Fourth Circuit to affirm a district court ruling which rejected a class action complaint alleging that Ford vehicles manufactured between 2002 and 2010 were susceptible to unintended acceleration events.

Notable practitioners

Jeffrey Fisher is hailed as "one of the best Supreme Court advocates there is" by market commentators and has argued over 35 cases before the Court. His experience spans a wide range of cases from telecommunications law to civil and human rights issues, with recent experience in matters concerning the International Organizations Immunity Act. Sources state: "He is a fantastic writer and oral advocate and is as nice as they come. He knows the Supreme Court backwards and forwards."

The "phenomenal" Jonathan Hacker is particularly noted for his adept handling of insurance and ERISA-related appellate matters. Clients report: "He is able to take an extremely complex situation and very simply explain our position, and has a great ability to think through all the different angles in an argument and address them. He is very collaborative and a tremendous advocate."

Walter Dellinger has a distinguished appellate practice, drawing on his wealth of experience from his time as Acting Solicitor General. His expertise spans a broad array of commercial, regulatory and policy issues, having argued over 20 cases before the Supreme Court.
