Amicus Briefs

We represent major organizations, companies, and interest groups as “friends of the court.”

Our amicus briefs make an impact

Amicus briefs are tricky — they need to persuade without repeating the parties’ briefs, say something new but relevant, and grab the court’s attention without being too flashy.

We’ve read thousands of amicus briefs while working for appellate courts, and thought deeply about what works. The briefs we write make a difference, and are briefs that appellate courts take into consideration, and even sometimes cite, when crating rules of law.

Added credibility with former U.S. Supreme Court and California Supreme Court clerks

Our lawyers clerked for the appellate courts where we file our briefs, and are often names that the judges and justices recognize.

We punch above our weight and are recognized for it

Anna-Rose Mathieson has filed numerous amici briefs in the U.S. Supreme Court and federal circuits, and both the New York Times and the Economist have written about her briefs.

We represent important companies and groups

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, America’s Health Insurance Plans, and other major organizations have hired us for their amicus briefs.

We don’t write “vanity” amicus briefs

Rather, we think creatively to ensure every amicus brief we file provides a unique and useful perspective relevant to the party we represent.
