Constitutional Litigation Unique Circumstances
A tumultuous political climate can usher in an increase in constitutional challenges to government action across a range of regulatory and statutory fronts. Well versed in constitutional law, our attorneys have the knowledge and experience to assist with the unique aspects of constitutional litigation.
Our Constitutional Litigation Practice Group offers comprehensive services, often working together with our Appellate Litigation and Government & Regulatory Teams. We have represented both plaintiffs and defendants in federal and state constitutional disputes, including matters before the U.S. Supreme Court.
Business clients have retained us to enjoin laws or regulations based on the violation of federal or state constitutions, defend constitutional claims, and provide advice on the strength of potential constitutional claims and the best legal strategies for pursuing them. Our attorneys have litigated cases involving a wide array of subject areas, including the First Amendment, the Dormant Commerce Clause, the Takings Clause, the Separation of Powers Doctrine, the Equal Protection Clause, and the Due Process Clause. We have a particular depth of experience in representing media clients in free speech claims under the First Amendment.
