Weil Named as 2021 Appellate Hot List Honoree by The National Law Journal

Weil has been named to the “2021 Appellate Hot List” by The National Law Journal in recognition of our recent victories before the U.S. Supreme Court, state supreme courts and federal circuit courts. 

The publication profiled Weil in a Q&A with Appellate practice Co-Head Gregory Silbert. He discussed Weil’s impressive track recordand the team effort that goes into arguing “the straightest path to victory.”

Greg highlighted the growth and dynamism of the Appellate practice, particularly the impact Co-Head Zack Tripp has delivered since joining Weil almost two years ago from the U.S. Solicitor General’s Office, and the depth of talent in the team.

The Appellate practice is led by some of the most experienced litigators and trial lawyers in the country, but the results also reflect the excellence of the group’s up-and-coming attorneys.

“I really enjoy arguing and brief-writing, but my favorite thing about the job is working with junior lawyers,” Greg said. “The talent of our appellate associates just blows my mind.”

The National Law Journal’s plaudits further establish the Litigation Department as an industry leader. In addition to this most recent award, since 2017, Weil has been recognized as:

  • A Finalist in the 2021 Litigation Department of the Year contest by the New York Law Journal (General Litigation Category)
