Supreme Court & Appellate Litigation
Led by one of the country’s premier Supreme Court advocates, the Paul, Weiss Supreme Court and Appellate Practice regularly handles high-profile cases before the U.S. Supreme Court and federal and state appellate courts. Our lawyers have secured victories in some of the most important business and public interest cases of our time.
Litigation partner Kannon Shanmugam is featured in the June 21 episode of “Legal Speak,” a podcast on Law.com. Speaking with Law.com Supreme Court correspondent Tony Mauro, Kannon talks about what drew him to a career in appellate advocacy, the current term of the Court and what it’s like to argue before the Court's newest member, Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
In his introduction to the podcast, Tony describes Kannon as “perhaps the most eloquent and elegant manner in a Supreme Court practitioner that I’ve ever seen in my 40 years covering the Supreme Court. He projects calm, confidence and authority the moment he rises and takes to the lectern.”
