Chambers & Partners, one of the world’s most selective legal guides aimed toward businesses and high net-worth individuals, has named the Complex Appellate Litigation Group to its 2023 list of top firms for appellate litigation in California.

Chambers describes CALG as “a distinguished appellate boutique which acts for an impressive client base of major corporates, mid-market companies and individuals in complex appeals” and notes that the firm “appears regularly before the California state courts and the Ninth Circuit.”

Along with honoring the firm overall, the guide singled out Rex Heinke and M.C. Sungaila for special honors this year.

Chambers describes Rex as “a highly regarded and well-respected veteran of state and federal appellate court disputes” who “offers impressive experience acting for large international corporations across a range of sectors, as well as representing individuals.”

It describes M.C. as maintaining “a well-regarded and broad appellate practice,” calling her “focused, creative, thorough and concise,” with “analytical and written skills” that “are amazing” and “oral advocacy skills” that “are excellent.”
