PHILADELPHIA – November 2, 2020 - Cozen O’Connor is pleased to announce that the firm has been named to the National Law Journal’s 2020 Appellate Hot list. This report highlights law firms that have handled exemplary appellate matters. Potential nominees had to be able to point to at least one significant appellate win since January 2019 and possess an impressive appellate practice track record overall. A “significant win” was defined as prevailing before the U.S. Supreme Court, a U.S. circuit court of appeals or a state court of last resort when an important legal principle was at stake or the stakes were high, financially or otherwise.
In a Q&A held by the National Law Journal, Michael de Leeuw, co-chair of the firm’s Appellate Practice, stated that firm’s key to appellate success over the past year was, “due to the combined strength of our appellate and subject-matter practices.” Cozen O’Connor was among 24 law firms chosen, including Jones Day, Kirkland & Ellis, and Covington & Burling.
