Williams & Connolly Named to The National Law Journal’s “Appellate Hot List”

November 2015

Williams & Connolly has been named to The National Law Journal’s 2015 “Appellate Hot List,” a list of 20 law firms that represent “appellate advocacy at its strongest — winning the big cases and changing the law.”  Practice head Kannon Shanmugam is featured in the firm write-up, which highlights a Supreme Court ruling in favor of his client Omnicare Inc. and two federal circuit court rulings in favor of his client Pfizer Inc.  The NLJ also recognizes associate Allison Jones Rushing's arguments in two cases before circuit courts last year and notes the firm’s tradition of giving associates “partner-like lawyering responsibility.”
