"The national platform afforded by Jones Day's vast geographical footprint allows the [Issues & Appeals Practice]" to appear before courts "across the USA, while the team also has practitioners experienced at the nation's appellate epicenter, the Supreme Court."
-- Chambers USA
Distinctive among appellate groups, Issues & Appeals lawyers practice on both coasts, and many places in between, and in all courts, from state trial courts to the U.S. Supreme Court. Issues & Appeals lawyers are defined by a breadth of skills and depth of experience across a wide range of substantive areas and practice in every legal venue. As The National Law Journal observed in naming Issues & Appeals to its first Appellate Hot List, our lawyers have "helped establish landmark precedents" in a variety of substantive legal areas.
Jones Day's more than 70 Issues & Appeals lawyers are recognized and able advocates, including over 40 former U.S. Supreme Court law clerks, and more than 65 former federal appellate law clerks who have honed the art of advocacy through dozens of arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court and countless appearances before appellate and trial courts nationwide. In the words of Chambers USA, the practice "has a vast quantity of esteemed attorneys" who are "'masters of appellate advocacy,'" "'take complicated matters and distill them into clear language,'" and are "'able to absorb the facts of a case in ultra-quick time.'"
