Law360 named Sidley a 2019 “Appellate Group of the Year,” citing some of the practice’s most notable engagements, including the victory against a federal challenge to AT&T’s acquisition of Time Warner, and its commitment to open dialogue and collaboration. The publication ran a profile on the practice following an interview with co-leaders Joseph R. Guerra, Robert N. Hochman and Peter D. Keisler. Emphasizing what has helped drive their continued success, Hochman stated “We can sit down and have conversations where people take very different views and where people have different things to contribute. It's that kind of creative, trusting atmosphere that the absolute best work for the client gets done.”
One of the first law firms to have a dedicated national Supreme Court and Appellate practice, with a team widely recognized for its leadership in addressing novel and often intricate questions of federal and state law, Sidley represents clients before the United States Supreme Court, all federal courts of appeals and state appellate and supreme courts.
