Practice Overview


Cravath has extensive appellate experience, in federal and state courts across the country, representing appellants and appellees. From 2011 through 2019, Cravath ranked as a first‑tier firm for appellate practice nationwide in the U.S. News & World Report‑Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms” survey. The Firm was also included in The National Law Journal’s 2018 “Appellate Hot List.” The Legal 500 US has noted Cravath’s reputation for “incredible strategic and creative thinking, unparalleled responsiveness, and on‑the‑mark advice” and “very impressive track record in the appellate courts.”

The Firm regularly handles the appellate work for matters in which we are conducting the trial court litigation, including interlocutory appeals and appeals following trial or other disposition. In addition, we are frequently retained to take over on appeal matters that were originally handled by another firm at the trial court level. We also prepare amicus briefs in connection with important cases pending in the U.S. Supreme Court or in other appellate courts in which our clients―including industry groups, governmental entities or scholars―have an interest but are not parties.
