The American Lawyer featured a Fried Frank team led by litigation partner Douglas W. Baruch and litigation special counsel Jennifer M. Wollenberg and included litigation and public service counsel Karen T. Grisez, and litigation associates Kayla Stachniak Kaplan, Neaha P. Raol, Kate St. Romain, Melis Kiziltay Carter, Elizabeth LoPresti, Samuel Johnson, Ronald K. Williams, and Brian Stuart, and staff attorney Brendan McNamara in its “Litigators of the Week” column. On May 22, 2019, the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia issued a lengthy decision in one of three class action suits, Nio, et. al. v. DHS, granting Fried Frank's motion for summary judgment and denying the government's motion. Because of this decision and wins in the other two litigations, more than 1200 of Fried Frank's soldier clients have become U.S. citizens in the last two years.
