Justice Roberts's Disciples
Over 17 years at Hogan & Hartson and the solicitor general's office, John Roberts Jr. collaborated with and mentored dozens of lawyers. Roberts's legacy, says Cate Stetson at Hogan Lovells, is evident in "our style of advocacy, our attention to the craft, and the care we take." Roberts's disciples include:
Latham & Watkins
After working at Hogan, Garre became the only person ever to serve as assistant to the solicitor general, principal deputy SG, and then SG. Now global chair of Latham's Supreme Court and appellate group, he has argued 38 cases before the high court.
Ford Motor Company
General counsel and group vice president of Ford, Leitch is also a Hogan alum. He served in various positions in the George W. Bush administration, including deputy White House counsel.
Norton Rose Fulbright
Franklin left Hogan in 2006 to lead the appellate practice at Fulbright & Jaworski, now Norton Rose Fulbright. He has argued seven cases before the high court on a range of issues.
Codirector of the appellate practice at Hogan, Roberts's former firm, Stetson has argued complex civil cases at the U.S. Supreme Court and appeals courts. She was named a "Fab Fifty" litigator under 45 by The American Lawyer in 2007.
