The National Law Journal Legal Awards 2023 Names Appellate & Supreme Court Practice to ‘Appellate Hot List’ and Andrew Tutt to ‘D.C. Rising Stars’ List
Arnold & Porter was recognized four times at The National Law Journal Legal Awards 2023 on October 26, 2023. The firm’s Appellate & Supreme Court practice was named to The NLJ’s “Appellate Hot List,” and senior associate Andrew Tutt was named to the publication’s “D.C. Rising Stars” list. The firm’s Legislative and Public Policy Group was shortlisted for the “Government Relations/Lobbying” award and Intellectual Property partner Matthew Wolf was one of 12 finalists for The NLJ’s “Winning Litigators” section.
The NLJ’s annual “Appellate Hot List” recognizes firms that have performed significant appellate work. The firm’s Appellate & Supreme Court practice — led by the head of the practice, John Elwood — saw multiple Supreme Court victories in 2023, including a landmark First Amendment case, a notable civil procedure case, and a precedent-setting nursing home abuse case. The NLJ recognized the practice for their noteworthy Supreme Court victories, as well as for the depth and excellence of their team, which consists of appellate veterans and Next-Gen lawyers. This is the group’s ninth time being named to the “Appellate Hot List.”
The NLJ also named Appellate & Supreme Court senior associate Andrew Tutt to its “D.C. Rising Stars” list, which honors lawyers who have “wielded influence in their practice areas in the D.C. area and beyond.” Tutt was recognized for winning three Supreme Court cases in one year — Torres v. Texas Department of Public Safety, which protects the reemployment rights of veterans and servicemembers, Health and Hospital Corporation of Marion County v. Talevski, which is a case with major implications for civil rights litigation nationwide, and Dupree v. Younger, which clarifies the rules for appellate preservation for federal cases that go to trial. Tutt was named a “Rising Star” by Law360 for his appellate victories earlier this year.
The publication also shortlisted the firm’s Legislative and Public Policy Group — led by the chair of the practice, Kevin O'Neill — for its “Government Relations/Lobbying” award. The group possesses a unique team-based lobbying model for clients, which has assisted them in securing several major accomplishments this term. Intellectual Property partner Matthew Wolf was one of 12 finalists for The NLJ’s “Winning Litigators” section, following his recent litigation victories for clients Hologic Inc., Boston Scientific, and Sanofi-Aventis US and Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc.
