Legal Lions 

First up are the Gibson Dunn attorneys who represented Verizon Communications Inc. in a landmark victory in the D.C. Circuit with major ramifications for online industries. The ruling gutted the Federal Communications Commission’s net neutrality regulatory regime, vacating rules that broadband providers couldn't block lawful online content or discriminate in network traffic. Helgi Walker of Gibson Dunn argued the case. Other petitioner counsel include Eve Klindera Reed, William Consovoy and Brett Shumate of Wiley Rein LLP; Walter Dellinger and Anton Metlitsky of O’Melveny & Myers; Samir Jain of WilmerHale LLP; Carl Northrop, Michael Lazarus and Andrew Morentz of Telecommunications Law Professionals PLLC; and Stephen Kinnaird of Paul Hastings LLP
