Mayer Brown LLP

Mayer Brown LLP

Mayer Brown's more than 60 appellate lawyers have argued over 200 cases before the United States Supreme Court, representing either parties or amici in approximately 15 cases each Term for the past several years, and arguing an average of four per Term. In addition, our lawyers have argued hundreds of cases in federal and state appellate courts across the nation.

Chambers USA and Legal 500 US have again recognized our Supreme Court & Appellate group's preeminence in the field: Legal 500 ranks us as a top tier practice, and Chambers USA ranks us alone in its top tier, stating that “for another year running, the appellate group at Mayer Brown stands head and shoulders above its competitors.” In fact, for the second straight year, Mayer Brown is the only firm to have received top-tier rankings in the appellate category by both publications this year. The publications' comments illustrate Mayer Brown's dominance in the field of appellate advocacy:

  • Chambers USA observes that our “team members' 'compelling oratory and strategic analysis is always favored in the courts.'”
  • Legal 500 US 2008 reports that clients describe Mayer Brown's appellate lawyers as “fantastic in providing support in previously uncharted territory” and "praise Mayer Brown's brief writing as 'simply brilliant-the best out there.'”
  • Clients interviewed by Legal 500 state that “'the depth and breadth of the practice is unrivalled', due not only to its 'tremendous depth of expertise' but also to its ability to 'bring so many creative lawyers to work on matters.'”

In 2008, the National Law Journal named Mayer Brown to its inaugural “Appellate Hot List,” recognizing firms that practice “exemplary, cutting-edge appellate advocacy.”
