Gupta Wessler LLP is a national appellate, constitutional, and complex litigation boutique focused on the representation of plaintiffs and public interest clients. We handle high-stakes controversies in the U.S. Supreme Court and courts across the country, approaching each matter with a fresh perspective, a bird’s-eye view of the law, and a strategic sense of how to frame the issues for success. We are go-to appellate advocates for trial lawyers nationwide, serving as a counterweight to the corporate dominance of the Supreme Court and appellate bar.
The firm maintains offices in Washington, DC; San Francisco, California; and Cambridge, Massachusetts. In addition, the firm’s lawyers serve as instructors in the Supreme Court Litigation Clinic at Harvard Law School.
We’re specialists in the art of advocacy: Our practice is focused on Supreme Court, appellate, and complex litigation. But we’re generalists when it comes to subject matter: We brief and argue a broad range of legal issues, from economic justice and civil rights to administrative law and constitutional issues of every stripe.
In all of our efforts, we work closely with leading trial counsel, scholars, policy experts, and advocacy groups to help shape the law in ways that enhance justice and improve people’s lives.
