National Law Journal Once Again Names Firm To “Appellate Hot List”

The NLJ profile features a question-and-answer article with Partner Jessica Ring Amunson, who last term argued and won US Supreme Court case Class v. United States, a case that challenged the waiver of constitutional rights in guilty pleas.  Ms. Amunson credited the breadth and depth of talent within the practice and across the firm as responsible for the practice’s success.  Last term’s arguing lawyers received “crucial support from an enormously talented team comprised of appellate lawyers and subject-matter practitioners working collaboratively across practices and offices to deliver excellence for our clients.”
