Consistently ranked as one of the nation’s top appellate practices, Arnold & Porter's Appellate and Supreme Court group has established a reputation for aggressively and successfully handling high-stakes, precedent-setting appeals that protect our clients’ interests across a wide range of legal areas.
- Unprecedented Supreme Court win record. Our practice is chaired by Lisa S. Blatt, who has argued 33 cases before the Supreme Court, prevailing in 32—an unprecedented record of success. Since 2010 alone, the firm has represented clients in eight Supreme Court merits cases, prevailing in every one.
- Powerful bench of appellate professionals. Clients seek the distinctive experience of our team, which includes a veteran of the Solicitor General’s office, former law clerks from the Supreme Court and nearly every US circuit court of appeals, the former head of criminal appeals for the US Attorney’s Office in the S.D.N.Y., adjunct professors of appellate law, a former president of the California Academy of Appellate Lawyers, and Best Lawyers’ “Lawyer of the Year” for Denver Appellate Practice.
- Teaming with top-ranked advocates in substantive practice areas. A key aspect of our success is the coordination between our appellate advocates and our nationally recognized attorneys in numerous global industries and areas of substantive law, including antitrust, consumer products, environmental, financial services, health care, intellectual property, life sciences, transnational litigation, and white collar criminal defense.
- National recognition. The practice repeatedly has been recognized by The National Law Journal’s Appellate “Hot List” and nationally ranked by Chambers USA, The Legal 500, and U.S. News & World Reports.
