Overview

Nicole A. Saharsky is co-head of Mayer Brown's Supreme Court & Appellate Practice. She focuses her practice on briefing and arguing cases in the US Supreme Court and in the federal and state appellate courts and on developing legal strategy for the trial courts and agency proceedings.

Nicole previously served for ten years as an Assistant to the Solicitor General in the United States Department of Justice, where she was responsible for briefing and arguing cases in the US Supreme Court and overseeing government appeals in the federal courts of appeals.

Nicole has argued more cases in the US Supreme Court than any other woman over the last decade. She has argued 29 cases, briefed 45 cases on the merits, and filed hundreds of certiorari-stage briefs and motions in the Supreme Court. Her cases involved a broad range of business issues, including securities fraud, intellectual property, labor and employment, bankruptcy, personal jurisdiction, and corporate criminal liability. Nicole frequently is asked to provide commentary on the Supreme Court by C-SPAN, Law360, Reuters, and other national media outlets. She recently was featured in a Law360 article and video series on the topic, “Will the Future of the Supreme Court Bar Be Female?”

Nicole also has substantial experience in the federal courts of appeals. While in the Solicitor General’s office, she regularly reviewed and provided guidance on government appeals. Those cases involved a wide variety of constitutional and statutory questions and spanned all of the federal circuits.

Nicole previously served as a Bristow Fellow in the Office of the Solicitor General and clerked for Judge Carolyn Dineen King of the Fifth Circuit. She received her law degree summa cum laude from University of Minnesota Law School, where she served as Lead Articles Editor of the Minnesota Law Review. She earned her undergraduate degree in chemical engineering from Northwestern University.
