Vault 100 2024 ranked Williams & Connolly’s Supreme Court & Appellate Litigation practice first in its annual ranking of the top 100 law firms in the nation.
The practice is led by appellate litigator Lisa Blatt, who has argued 46 cases—more than any woman in history—and has won nearly 90% of them.* The practice has argued 17 Supreme Court merits cases over the past four terms. During the 2022-23 Term alone, the group was lead counsel in eight merits cases and argued seven cases—tops for any group in private practice, comprising more than 13% of the Court’s entire merits docket. In addition to Lisa’s four arguments before the Court last Term, partner Sarah Harris argued twice and partner Amy Saharia argued once.
The Vault 100 ranking is based on scores from more than 23,000 law firm associates surveyed earlier this year, who were asked to rate law firms on a scale of 1 to 10 based on prestige. Survey respondents were not allowed to rate their own firms and were asked only to rate firms with which they were familiar.
