Nominations are now open for The National Law Journal’s annual “Appellate Hot List.” This special report highlights law firms that have handled exemplary appellate matters.
Potential nominees must be able to point to at least one significant appellate win since January 2020 and possess an impressive appellate track record overall. A “significant win” means prevailing before the U.S. Supreme Court, a federal appeals court, or a state court of last resort when an important legal principle was at stake or the stakes were high, financially or otherwise.
Nominations should include: A short description of the firm’s overall appellate track record (800 words maximum) and the specific case or cases to be considered for the 2021 submission (5 pages maximum.) Please include an explanation of the firm’s contribution to particular cases (i.e. presented oral arguments, drafted briefs, contributed amici arguments cited by the court) relative to significant co-counsel; and a list of the principal attorneys on a case, with their contact information included.
The deadline for nominations is July 19.
