The former Solicitor General of West Virginia, Elbert Lin co-chairs the Issues and Appeals practice at Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP. He has argued dozens of appeals across the country, including in the U.S. Supreme Court and before several en banc appeals courts.

With experience in the private sector and multiple branches of government, Elbert’s practice has spanned a wide range of issues, including major questions of constitutional and administrative law at the federal and state levels.

For two years as a trial attorney with the U.S. Department of Justice, Elbert primarily litigated suits involving the constitutionality of federal laws and challenges to federal agency action. He has also clerked for U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, U.S. Court of Appeals Judge William H. Pryor Jr., and Senior U.S. District Judge Robert E. Keeton.
