HowreyChair of Howrey LLP’s Appellate practice, Washington DC-based Jerrold Ganzfried has assumed the Chairmanship of the American Bar Association’s (ABA) Council of Appellate Lawyers.

Mr. Ganzfried is one of the original founders of the Council, which is the only nationwide bench-bar organization devoted to appellate courts and practice. The Council seeks to foster a dialogue among federal and state appellate judges and lawyers that will improve appellate advocacy and the administration of justice.

As Chairman of the Council, Mr. Ganzfried will also sit on the Board of Directors of the Appellate Judges Education Institute (AJEI) and on the Executive Committee of the ABA’s Appellate Judges Conference. These entities work closely with the Council.


Throughout his career, Mr. Ganzfired has handled the largest, most complex and most sensitive cases for major national and international firms. His vast experience includes litigating a broad range of cases and arguing appeals for the foremost companies in a variety of industries, including high technology, oil and gas, and financial services. He has served as counsel in many of the landmark antitrust, securities and intellectual property cases decided in the past two decades by the Supreme Court and the federal courts of appeals.

Mr. Ganzfried’s most recent successes include the reversal on appeal of a judgment arising from a dispute in a $100 million real estate transaction. In the past five years, he has won high-profile appeals involving the savings and loan industry crisis, securities class actions, a contract/patent licensing dispute over cutting-edge biotechnology, and one of the largest corporate tax cases ever reversed on appeal.

According to the August 17 article at citbizlist.com, Mr. Ganzfried was quoted as saying: “I look forward to the coming year. The Council is dedicated to the professional development of appellate lawyers through creative, effective programs and productive dialogue with judges who sit on appellate courts at all levels across the country. I am honored to have been asked to serve.”
