Chambers & Partners has compiled its independent and objective list of America's Leading Lawyers for Business based on comments gathered from thousands of interviews with clients and lawyers from Maine to Hawaii. This guide — which is designed to reflect market opinion — contains a view of the firms and attorneys who are considered leaders in their field.
In Chambers' 2008 review of national legal talent in the area of "Appellate Law," our Firm and our lawyers are listed among the best in the country.
National Ranking: Tier 4
The Firm: Kirkland's litigation practice is regarded as among the foremost in the USA and it has developed an expert appellate litigation offering. Chris Landau successfully drives the practice, which continues to have a substantial Supreme Court presence and whose members undertake a diverse range of appeals arising in the federal and state courts. The team's expertise ranges from telecoms and IP to religious freedom issues and its attorneys are highlighted by sources for their ability to present complex questions of law in a clear and precise way. The team has recently acted in McConnell v Federal Election Commission, a case challenging the constitutionality of the McCain-Feingold Campaign Finance Law.
