Kilpatrick Stockton LLP today announced that
Mark I. Levy has joined the Firm’s Washington, D.C. office, where he will specialize
in U.S. Supreme Court and appellate litigation. With 30 years of relevant
experience, Mr. Levy will play a substantial role in developing and expanding
Kilpatrick Stockton’s Supreme Court and appellate litigation practice.
“Mark’s extensive background, including participation in dozens of Supreme Court
cases, helps round out our existing appellate litigation practice, and is one step
in our strategic plan for development and expansion in this area,” said Bill
Brewster, Managing Partner for Kilpatrick Stockton.
A graduate of Yale Law School, Mr. Levy served for five years in the Office of the
Solicitor General. He was also Deputy Assistant Attorney General in the Civil
Division of the Department of Justice.
“Last year, we organized our appellate work nationwide into a discrete specialty
practice,” added Steve Clay, Chairman of the Kilpatrick Stockton Litigation Section.
“The addition of Mark Levy continues the growth and expansion of that group. Adam
Charnes, Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General for the Office of Legal Policy
at the U.S. Department of Justice and a former law clerk to Justice Kennedy, joined
our practice last September, and other additions are expected. We were involved in
75 to 100 appeals around the country last year, and expect the practice to expand in
