Williams & Connolly’s Supreme Court and Appellate Litigation practice was once again named to The National Law Journal’s “Appellate Hot List.” According to the publication, the list features firms that “tackled novel issues and undoubtedly overcame unprecedented challenges over the past year, boasting high-profile and high-stakes wins in the nation’s highest appellate courts across a number of practice areas.” The practice is led by appellate litigator Lisa Blatt, who has argued 46 cases before the U.S. Supreme Court—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. Earlier this year, Vault 100 ranked the practice first in its annual ranking of the top 100 law firms in the nation.
