Williams & Connolly Receives 2021 AmLaw “Litigation Department of the Year” Honorable Mention

December 2021

Williams & Connolly was one of nine firms nationally to receive Honorable Mention recognition in The American Lawyer’s “Litigation Department of the Year” contest.  This biennial feature highlights firms that “demonstrate the incredibly high quality of work being done in courtrooms across the country” and “highlight the tenacity and stellar advocacy of the litigators involved in these matters.”  The American Lawyer recognized Williams & Connolly for its win before the U.S. Supreme Court in United States Patent & Trademark Office v. Booking.com, a landmark trademark case holding that the addition of “.com” to the end of an otherwise generic term can create a protectable trademark.  Additionally, AmLaw spotlighted the firm’s trial victory on behalf of CVS in hard-fought class action litigation related to the company’s Health Savings Pass generic discount drug program, with more than $120 million in damages at stake, as well as the firm’s successful representation of photographer Lynn Goldsmith before the Second Circuit challenging the lower court’s decision that the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts had a fair use defense to Ms. Goldsmith’s claim of copyright infringement.*
