For former acting U.S. Solicitor General Neal Katyal, elevating the next crop of Supreme Court advocates at Hogan Lovells starts with getting them deeply involved in high court matters early in their firm careers.

Hogan Lovells scored two U.S. Supreme Court victories in cases argued by Katyal in the court’s last term: McDonough v. Smith, a case about when government officials can be sued for fabricating criminal evidence, and Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission v. American Humanist Association, the so-called “peace cross” case regarding a World War I memorial in the shape of a Christian cross on public land in Maryland.
