05 January 2011
WASHINGTON, D.C., 5 January 2011 – Hogan Lovells US LLP announced today that Washington, D.C. office partner and Director of the Hogan Lovells Appellate practice group, Cate Stetson, was named by The American Lawyer magazine in the January 2011 issue as one of the "45 Under 45," a list of the "Top Young Women of the Am Law 200."
Stetson is among an elite few women lawyers who have made a significant impact within the legal landscape at the court of appeals level. The article noted Stetson's prolific appellate record, including her victory in a high-profile Ninth Circuit en banc case and a subsequent defeat of certiorari in the Supreme Court. The article also quoted D.C. Circuit judge David Tatel, who observed that Stetson is "one of the finest lawyers who appears" before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.
To determine the final list, The American Lawyer reporters reviewed and consulted records, clients, and opposing counsel, ranking women with an upward trajectory at their firms and those who have already contributed considerable qualifying achievements to the legal profession.
