Hughes Hubbard's appellate practice is national in scope and involves hundreds of appeals in the United States Supreme Court, virtually all of the United States courts of appeals, and numerous state supreme courts and intermediate appellate courts. In recent years, we have represented clients in cases presenting cutting-edge issues in antitrust, First Amendment, securities, intellectual property, banking, and art law. Our senior appellate lawyer, for example, has argued in 20 different appellate courts around the country on a broad array of matters.
Our appellate advocates also regularly prepare amicus curiae briefs on a variety of issues on matters before the Supreme Court and other appellate tribunals. In the past few years, we have submitted amicus briefs on behalf of the American Arbitration Association, Boy Scouts of America, National Congress of American Indians, U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees, international jurists, U.S. Chamber of Commerce, industry groups, and members of the Senate and the House of Representatives.
Hughes Hubbard’s commitment to its appellate practice begins with its lawyers – with the talents and experiences that we bring to all of our work. To this we add an institutional dedication to our profession, the investment of considerable time and resources, and hard work. The result is that our appellate lawyers are lawyers’ lawyers, with a broad gauged knowledge of the law reflective of our unusually diverse practice, enabling us to put the case within the framework of related law and public policy.
