Each year, Law360 names practice area “MVPs” as “an elite group of attorneys who are leaders in their practice areas and have seen extraordinary wins in the past year.” This year, Law360 recognized partner Sarah Harris among its five Appellate MVPs.
Law360 highlighted Sarah’s two U.S. Supreme Court victories last Term: Salinas v. U.S. Railroad Retirement Board (5-4 win in February 2021), and Carr v. Saul (9-0 win in April 2021).* “They both happened to be benefits cases, but they were both hard-fought wins, especially Salinas, which was our first 5-to-4 of the term,” Sarah said. “That was personally my biggest accomplishment.” In her interview with Law360, Sarah also discussed her proudest moment this year: “We had so many people with arguments in courts of appeals who are associates,” she said.
Sarah represents clients in high-stakes appeals in the U.S. Supreme Court and federal and state appellate courts across the country. Her cases have covered a wide range of topics, including constitutional law, administrative law, class actions, antitrust, False Claims Act litigation, products liability, commercial litigation, and federal civil procedure. Earlier this year, Sarah was named to Bloomberg Law’s “40 Under 40” list of top lawyers nationwide and to Benchmark Litigation’s “40 & Under Hot List.” She has also been recognized in the appellate field as a “Rising Star” by The National Law Journal and Law360, a “Next Generation Lawyer” by The Legal 500, and as one of Bloomberg Law’s “Five Fresh Faces to Know in Appellate.”
