The National Law Journal: Appellate Hot List 2018: O’Melveny & Myers

October 26, 2018

The National Law Journal named O’Melveny to its 2018 Appellate Host List, which honors firms for their “success before the US Supreme Court and federal appeals courts.” In the firm’s award profile, partner and chair of O’Melveny’s Appellate practice Jonathan Hacker discusses the China Agritech v. Resh case, saying that the win “epitomized our team approach,” as both securities lawyers and Supreme Court specialists worked together to argue the securities-fraud class action. Hacker’s advice to his younger self would be to “do it all again.” This means “joining Sri Srinivasan, Pam Harris, and John Owens in helping the incomparable Walter Dellinger build O’Melveny’s Appellate practice. You may or may not become a federal judge—three-in-four chance!—but you’ll be very happy in 20 years.”
