Law360 named Williams & Connolly among its "Appellate Practice Groups of the Year," recognizing that the firm notched multiple U.S. Supreme Court wins including Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Inc. v. Goldsmith, a closely-followed copyright case involving the “transformative use” doctrine; Gonzalez v. Google, concerning the scope of immunity for interactive computer services under the Communications Decency Act; and Jack Daniel’s Properties Inc. v. VIP Products LLC, where the question presented was whether a defendant’s “humorous” or “expressive” use of another’s trademark insulates the defendant from liability for infringing or diluting the trademark.
Williams & Connolly’s Supreme Court and Appellate Litigation practice is led by 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.* During the 2022-23 Term alone, the group was lead counsel in eight merits cases and argued seven—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.
