The National Law Journal: Appellate Hot List 2019- O’Melveny & MyersOctober 25, 2019
O’Melveny has been named to The National Law Journal’s 2019 “Appellate Hot List.” The prestigious special report featured an interview with Appellate Practice chair Jonathan Hacker and special counsel Jeffrey Fisher. In particular, they discussed their US Supreme Court win in the case Jam v. International Finance Corp.
“We persuaded the [US Supreme] Court to overturn decades of D.C. Circuit precedent construing a very important statute: the International Organization Immunities Act,” they told the NLJ. “Our victory was truly a team effort. Led by Jeff Fisher, appellate attorneys from three different O’Melveny offices worked together on this complex case. Our team simplified the issues and presented a straightforward path to rule in our client’s favor.”
