Law360 Features Orrick Appellate Team’s “High-Stakes Wins”

5 minute read

In this feature, Law360 highlighted our string of major appellate wins last year for tech, finance, life sciences clients and beyond. The publication named Orrick a 2022 Practice Group of the Year in Appellate.

Among other important successes, the feature cited a precedent-setting copyright protection ruling in the U.S. Supreme Court for Unicolors, the reversal of a $1.1 billion patent judgment in the Federal Circuit for Gilead subsidiary Kite Pharma and the reversal of hundreds of millions of dollars in damages in talc litigation against Johnson & Johnson.

"I think it's a validation of what we've been striving for, which is to do the biggest, hardest appeals, with a view toward diversity of every sort," partner Josh Rosenkranz, head of our Supreme Court and Appellate practice, told Law360, adding that the firm has worked cases that "run the gamut from copyright to banking, down to products liability to patents."

Partners Mel Bostwick and Naomi Scotten also discussed the year’s signature wins, describing the group’s unique approach to weaving in a client’s story with the key legal arguments in appeals.
