The National Law Journal Names Ropes & Gray to its 2019 Appellate Hot List
The National Law Journal named Ropes & Gray to its 2019 “Appellate Hot List,” ranking the firm among the top law firms in the United States for appellate litigation. In a special feature, appellate and Supreme Court practice chair Doug Hallward-Driemeier discusses Ropes & Gray’s leading appellate practice, including the team’s victory in NextEra v. Elliott Associates.
Explaining how the firm has approached its appellate success over the past year, Mr. Hallward-Driemeier says, “Close collaboration between appellate litigators and substantive experts gives us the edge. At trial, we have an eye toward appeal; on appeal, we demystify intricacies of bankruptcy, transactions, patents, or health care regulation by working closely with specialists.”
