Kathleen Sullivan Named One of The National Law Journal’s 2015 Outstanding Women Lawyers


The National Law Journal has published its list of Outstanding Women Lawyers, which includes a lineup of the most successful female attorneys working in law today. These honorees were selected from hundreds of nominations and were evaluated on their skills, leadership roles, performance in significant cases, and achievement of precedent-setting rulings. The National Law Journal described Kathleen Sullivan as “an uncommon combination of appellate courtroom star and academia standout.” She was recognized for her representations of Samsung Electronics Co., Google Inc., Mattel Inc., and Shell Oil Co., as well as her recent victories before the U.S. Supreme Court, including “one that dramatically curbed the use of the Alien Tort Statute against corporations.” Ms. Sullivan is the first—and to date only—female name partner at an Am Law 100 firm.
