Kellogg, Huber, Hansen, Todd, Evans & Figel, P.L.L.C.

Washington, DC-based Kellogg, Huber, Hansen, Todd, Evans & Figel is a firm happy taking cases in the trial and appellate world, even when those cases bring its attorneys to the court of last resort.

Who's Afraid of the FCC?

In 1993, three partners at large law firms jumped ship to form their own small firm focused on trial and appellate litigation. Since then, the firm has grown to house more than 70 attorneys, and has strong practices in commercial litigation, Supreme Court and appellate litigation, government investigations and white collar practice and telecommunications practice. Kellog Huber's attorneys are trial and appellate specialists--some of them have taught appellate advocacy at the Federal Judicial Center and the National Institute of Trial Advocacy.

The firm's attorneys advise businesses and individuals on how to stay clear of violations of antitrust laws, securities laws and other regulations. Furthermore, Kellogg Huber has been active in both sides of the patenting game, whether defending accused offenders or representing patent holders of such technologies as semiconductors, optical disc drives, medical ultrasound equipment and pharmaceutical innovations.

Although the firm represents a variety of industries, they have a particular depth of experience in the telecommunications industry, representing companies like Verizon and AT&T in dealings with the Federal Communications Commission. Among its victories were negotiating Comcast's ability to Washington Nationals baseball games, challenging FCC orders denying Verizon relief from restrictive regulation and successfully challenging regulations stemming from the Telecommunications Act of 1996.

Standing Before the Supreme Nine

Although they have experience in federal appeals courts, Kellogg Huber's attorneys are not afraid to take their cases to the very top. According to the firm's site, Kellogg attorneys have argued 25 merits cases before the Supreme nine, including notable antitrust and telecommunications cases like Bell Atlantic Corp. v. Twombly, Pacific Bell Telephone Co. v. linkLine Communications. Recent Supreme Court victories have included combating a drug manufacturer's claim that FDA approval preempted lawsuits against a company for failure to issues warnings about a product, representing the state of South Carolina in an equitable apportionment case about the Catawba river, and upholding a jury award for an injured railroad worker plaintiff by pointing to Federal Employers' Liability Act standards.
