Marwell, Jeremy C.

Jeremy’s principal area of practice is appellate litigation, with a focus on constitutional and administrative law. His practice involves both civil and criminal matters in the U.S. Courts of Appeals, state appellate courts, and federal and state trial courts, as well as regulatory and legal counseling. Before joining the firm, Jeremy served in the Office of Legal Counsel at the U.S. Department of Justice, where he provided legal advice and analysis to the White House and federal agencies on a wide range of constitutional and statutory issues. His particular areas of focus included administrative and environmental law, privilege and congressional oversight, domestic implementation of international law, legal issues regarding review of foreign investment in the United States, cyber security and computer networks, and national security matters. Jeremy has authored dozens of briefs in federal and state trial and appellate courts and at the certiorari and merits stages in the Supreme Court of the United States, with a particular focus on constitutional, administrative, environmental and tax law, energy issues, complex commercial litigation, and the False Claims Act.
