THURSDAY, APRIL 8, Supreme Court I 2021: How It Got Here, and Where It’s Going
Roman Martinez, a Latham & Watkins partner and Supreme Court advocate, will discuss the latest developments at the Court, including the three Trump-appointed Justices, prospects for evolution and reform in the Biden years, and key cases on the October Term 2020 docket.
As a member of the firm’s Supreme Court & Appellate Practice, he focuses primarily on appeals in the Supreme Court of the United States, the United States Courts of Appeals, and state appellate courts. Mr. Martinez has handled civil and criminal matters involving a wide range of constitutional, statutory, and administrative law issues, and he has argued cases in the US Supreme Court and the D.C., Second, Sixth, Ninth, and Federal Circuits, and the New York, California, and Tennessee appellate courts, among others. Mr. Martinez’s practice encompasses civil and criminal matters spanning virtually all areas of law. In 2016, he rejoined Latham after serving as an Assistance to the Solicitor General at the US Department of Justice. In that role, he represented the United States in litigation before the Supreme Court and advised the Solicitor General on the government’s appellate litigation throughout the country.
Mr. Martinez has personally argued nine cases in the Supreme Court, including important cases in the fields of the First Amendment, patent law, criminal law, civil rights, employment, and civil procedure. Before joining Latham, Roman Martinez served as a law clerk to Chief Justice John G. Roberts and to then-Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh of the D.C. Circuit Court.
