Litigator of the Year: Miguel Estrada

The American Lawyer


Miguel Estrada

Got a tough, potentially unwinnable case? Call Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher's Miguel Estrada. The appellate lawyer's brains and tenacity were on display in recent wins before the U.S. Supreme Court and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. Estrada won a groundbreaking decision in an antitrust class action against Comcast Corporation at the high court and a landmark ruling curtailing the president's recess appointments power at the circuit. When the Supreme Court needed someone to argue the opposing side of a criminal drug case, Estrada got the call. At the Yankees of litigation shops, it's hard to stand out—but Estrada is a true clutch player.
