Mayer Brown’s more than 55 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 United States.
Our lawyers apply their experience across relevant premier practice areas including insurance and reinsurance, finance, corporate, outsourcing, regulatory, antitrust, restructuring and insolvency, government and trade, real estate, tax and construction.
Our group frequently represents insurers and their trade groups in appeals in federal and state courts throughout the United States and has had many high profile insurance industry victories, including the landmark Supreme Court decision in Stoneridge, which had significant positive implications for insurers covering the reversal of a criminal conviction in US v. Brennan, a case involving a senior executive at a Gen Re aviation reinsurance affiliate.
Our partners have also acted in the role of issue-preservation counsel at trials in which large damage awards were sought against our insurer clients and handled post-trial motions in cases in which insurers have been held liable for substantial damages.
