Appellate and Constitutional Law

LEADERS

Overview

Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher is renowned for its award-winning Appellate and Constitutional Law Practice Group, one of the largest and most experienced appellate practices in the nation. Each year, we present arguments in the Supreme Court of the United States, all 13 federal courts of appeals, and state appellate courts throughout the country. We work closely with trial teams to preserve arguments and develop a winning litigation strategy. When the occasion calls for it, we also develop novel or complex legal theories, sometimes long before the suit is filed. No firm has a stronger record of appellate success.

Renowned U.S. Supreme Court Advocacy

Gibson Dunn has an unmatched record of success representing clients before the Supreme Court of the United States. With its diverse team of Supreme Court practitioners, Gibson Dunn consistently litigates multiple Supreme Court cases each Term, among the most of any firm. We regularly achieve victory in the most challenging cases with the highest stakes.

  • Gibson Dunn lawyers have argued nearly 160 cases before the Supreme Court, with eleven current attorneys having argued at the Court.
  • We build Supreme Court cases from the ground up, working hand-in-hand with trial attorneys to develop a strong record for appellate review and position each case for Supreme Court review if necessary.
  • Our Supreme Court victories have been some of the biggest and most consequential in history:
    • Bush v. Gore, which resolved Florida’s recount dispute in the 2000 presidential election.
    • Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, which struck down limits on corporate independent expenditures under the First Amendment.
    • Hollingsworth v. Perry, which defeated an effort by the proponents of California’s Proposition 8 to defend the proposition in court.
    • Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. v. Dukes, the most important Supreme Court decision in decades on the limits of certifying claims for class action treatment.
    • Alice Corp. v. CLS Bank International, which reformed the law of patent eligibility.
    • National Labor Relations Board v. Noel Canning, which struck down presidential appointments made while the Senate was in pro forma session.
    • Daimler AG v. Bauman, which recognized important due process limits on courts’ exercise of personal jurisdiction over out-of-state defendants.
    • Murphy v. National Collegiate Athletic Association, which struck down prohibitions on the legalization of sports wagering.
    • Lucia v. Securities and Exchange Commission, which held that SEC administrative law judges are “Officers of the United States” who must be appointed consistent with the Appointments Clause.
    • Department of Homeland Security v. Regents of the University of California, which struck down DHS’s attempt to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

Unparalleled Federal and State Appellate Advocacy

In addition to our Supreme Court practice, Gibson Dunn attorneys handle a wide range of appellate matters in the federal courts of appeals and the state appellate courts.

  • Each year, we brief and argue federal appeals in every regional circuit, the D.C. Circuit, the Federal Circuit, and dozens of state courts of appeals—averaging one appeal approximately every three business days.
  • Our appellate attorneys regularly work alongside the trial team to anticipate legal issues and position our clients for victory on appeal even while the case remains in the trial court. This comprehensive approach to litigation permits us to leverage the wide expertise of lawyers across all of Gibson Dunn’s diverse practices.
  • When government action is at issue, our appellate lawyers work with the firm’s nationally recognized Administrative Law and Regulatory Practice Group. We have achieved significant victories in some of the biggest administrative proceedings across the federal government, including the FCC’s Net Neutrality proceeding and numerous SEC rules regulating the national securities exchanges.

Our Team

Gibson Dunn has more than 200 lawyers who practice appellate and constitutional law in our offices across the United States, and is home to more than 240 attorneys who served as law clerks in the federal and state appellate courts, including more than 25 who clerked at the U.S. Supreme Court. In addition, one of our lawyers held the prestigious Bristow Fellowship awarded by the U.S. Solicitor General.

Allyson Ho, Thomas H. Dupree, Jr. and Julian W. Poon are the Chairs of the Appellate Practice Group. All are widely regarded as among the nation’s most accomplished appellate litigators. Ms. Ho has presented over 70 oral arguments in federal and state courts nationwide, including multiple high-stakes cases on behalf of business before the U.S. Supreme Court. She also has a distinguished record of experience at the highest levels of the federal government. Mr. Dupree has briefed and argued several cases in the Supreme Court of the United States and more than 80 cases in the federal courts of appeals. He previously served as Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Division of the Department of Justice, overseeing more than 900 lawyers. Mr. Poon appears regularly before federal and state appellate courts in California, including the Ninth Circuit, the California Supreme Court, and the California Court of Appeal. He has been recognized as an outstanding appellate lawyer by Chambers and a “Litigation Star” by Benchmark Litigation.

Three of our partners served in the Office of the Solicitor General of the United States, the office charged with representing the United States before the U.S. Supreme Court:

  • Theodore Olson served as U.S. Solicitor General from 2001 to 2004. Between his government service and private practice, Mr. Olson has argued 65 cases before the U.S. Supreme Court.

He was also General Counsel to the U.S. House of Representatives from 2016 to 2019. Between his government service and private practice, Mr. Hungar has argued 26 cases before the U.S. Supreme Court.

In addition, numerous other partners have held high-ranking government positions, including Helgi Walker and Elizabeth Papez.

Our attorneys have been honored as the “Litigator of the Week” or “Litigator of the Year” by The American Lawyer numerous times:

  • In June 2019, Matt McGill was awarded Litigator of the Week for his successful challenge to the Department of Justice’s reinterpretation of interstate gambling statute.

  • In November 2018, Ted Olson and Ted Boutrous were awarded Litigators of the Week for their successful challenge to the White House’s revocation of the press pass of CNN’s Jim Acosta. Ted Boutrous was recognized again in September 2019 for a similar victory involving Playboy White House reporter Brian Karem.
  • In May 2018, Ted Olson was recognized as Litigator of the Week for his victory in the Supreme Court overturning the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992.

  • In Standard Fire Insurance Co. v. Knowles (U.S. 2013), we secured a unanimous Supreme Court decision for Standard Fire enforcing the Class Action Fairness Act.

  • In Hollingsworth v.

Franklin California Tax-Free Trust (U.S. 2016), we obtained a Supreme Court ruling in favor of our client, holding that Puerto Rico’s Public Corporation Debt and Recovery Act, which purported to create a binding bankruptcy-like debt-restructuring regime for the Commonwealth’s highly indebted public entities, was preempted by federal law.
  • In Aetna Health Inc. v. Davila (U.S. 2004), we won a landmark victory for Aetna and CIGNA when the Supreme Court unanimously held that the Employee Retirement Insurance Security Act of 1974 completely preempts state-law actions by participants and beneficiaries of employee health benefit plans for matters relating to the plans’ coverage decision.
  • In Alice Corp. v. CLS Bank International (U.S. 2014), we obtained a unanimous Supreme Court victory holding that Alice Corporation’s financial service software patent was patent-ineligible because it was drawn to the abstract idea of intermediated settlement.

(3d Cir. 2021), we secured vacatur of a denial of a motion to compel arbitration and persuaded the court to adopt a new framework requiring courts to consider state-law grounds for compelling arbitration before ordering discovery under Section 1 of the FAA.
  • In Capriole v. Uber Technologies, Inc. (9th Cir. 2021), we obtained a decision that rideshare drivers are not a class of transportation workers exempt from the FAA under Section 1.

  • In Rimini Street Inc. v. Oracle USA Inc. (U.S. 2019), we secured a unanimous decision that the Copyright Act permits the prevailing party to recoup only a limited subset of the costs of the prevailing party.
