Lisa Blatt Named to The National Law Journal’s 2020 list of Washington, D.C. Trailblazers  

September 2020

The National Law Journal has named Lisa Blatt to its list of “Washington, D.C. Trailblazers,” recognizing “individuals who have changed the practice in their respective fields through innovative and exceptional legal strategies.”  The National Law Journal highlighted Lisa’s three U.S. Supreme Court victories last Term, including United States Patent & Trademark Office v., where the Court ruled 8-1 in favor of firm client and held that the addition of “.com” to a generic term can create a protectable trademark.  Lisa presented oral argument in early May, marking the first case in the Court’s history to be argued remotely, and the first case where live audio was available to the public. This summer, Law360 published its yearly “Law Firm Scorecard” analyzing Supreme Court wins and losses for the 2019 Term.  Naming Williams & Connolly as one of the “Firms That Won Big at the Supreme Court,” the publication highlighted the firm's 3-0 win/loss record, and noted that Lisa “wasted no time racking up wins” since her return to Williams & Connolly last year.  
Lisa serves as Chair of Williams & Connolly’s Supreme Court and Appellate Litigation practice.  She has argued 40 cases before the United States Supreme Court, prevailing in 37.*  The National Law Journal has called her a “visionary” and one of “the 100 most influential lawyers in America.” Bloomberg has described her as a “legendary high court litigator,” while The National Journal likewise has referred to her as a “SCOTUS legend.”
