Mayer Brown announced today that its Supreme Court & Appellate practice has been named one of the best in the United States by The National Law Journal (NLJ) for the tenth consecutive year.

In its prestigious 2017 Appellate Hot List, the NLJ recognized Mayer Brown among an “elite group of lawyers and law firms that posted hard-fought wins at the US Supreme Court or in federal circuit courts.” Mayer Brown has been selected to the list in each year it has been published.

In its profile of Mayer Brown’s appellate accomplishments in 2016-2017, the NLJ highlighted the firm’s win on behalf of Impression Products in Impression Products v. Lexmark. The Supreme Court reversed a 10-2 ruling by the en banc Federal Circuit on two questions regarding the patent exhaustion doctrine, finding that once a company has sold a product, it can’t dictate how it is used. The Mayer Brown team was led by partner Andy Pincus, who has appeared before High Court justices more than two dozen times, as well as partner Paul Hughes (both Washington DC).

In selecting firms for the 2017 Appellate Hot List, the NLJ asked readers to nominate firms with at least one significant appellate win since January 2016 and impressive track records overall. The publication named 20 firms to the list.

Mayer Brown’s Supreme Court & Appellate lawyers have argued 245 cases before the Supreme Court and hundreds more in federal and state appellate courts across the nation.
