United States: Dispute resolution

Appellate

Within: Appellate

Latham & Watkins LLP’s ‘impressive bench’ places the group ‘among the best’ for appellate work at state and federal level. Practice head Gregory Garre argued for the Florida Department of Environmental Protection in Florida v Georgia, the US Supreme Court appeal concerning water apportionment of the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint River Basin. Garre remains active at courts of appeals across the country; he is representing the respondent in Salazar v South San Antonio Independent School District, the Fifth Circuit appeal involving issues of student abuse. The ‘superb’ Richard Bress and Melissa Arbus Sherry are representing the American Beverage Association at the Ninth Circuit appeal challenging compliance of ordinances issued by San Francisco and limiting advertising of sugar-sweetened beverages with the First Amendment. At the Seventh Circuit, Sherry and Russell Sauer acted for US Soccer Federation in a case concerning tequila advertisement before the 2014 World Cup. ‘Smart, strategic and collaborative’ Scott Ballenger is a ‘real work horse’. Roman Martinez rejoined the firm following four terms as Assistant to the Solicitor General.
