O’Melveny Once Again Named to National Law Journal’s Appellate Hot List

October 28, 2019


WASHINGTON, DC—October 28, 2019—O’Melveny has been named to The National Law Journal’s 2019 “Appellate Hot List,” a highly selective honor recognizing 25 law firms that “won key matters before the U.S. Supreme Court and federal courts of appeals, staying true to their practice philosophies along the way.” This marks the second consecutive year the firm was named to the Appellate Hot List.

In a story about the firm, Appellate Practice chair Jonathan Hacker and special counsel Jeffrey Fisher discussed O’Melveny’s US Supreme Court win in Jam v. International Finance Corp. “We persuaded the Court to overturn decades of DC Circuit precedent construing a very important statute: the International Organization Immunities Act,” they told the NLJ.

They added the victory was a true team effort. “Led by Jeff Fisher, appellate attorneys from three different O’Melveny offices worked together on this complex case,” they said. “Our team simplified the issues and presented a straightforward path to rule in our client’s favor.”

When asked about the most satisfying element of their practice, Hacker and Fisher told the NLJ: “Working with the amazing lawyers in our practice, office, and firm. O’Melveny has leading practices in so many subject areas, and we get to write briefs and handle appeals in all of them. What a privilege.”
