NEVADA—Nevada lawyer Dan Polsenberg has been elected President of the American Academy of Appellate Lawyers. Polsenberg is a partner in the Las Vegas and Reno offices of Lewis Roca.
The Appellate Academy is one of the most prestigious appellate organizations in the country. It is an exclusive, invitation-only membership, comprised of 350 of America’s best lawyers who do appeals.
With over 30 years as a litigator, Polsenberg has personally argued 285 appeals and authored briefs in over a thousand more. These cases cover the legal field, ranging from contracts to constitutional law and from torts to tax. He has garnered the reputation as the Nevada lawyer for a “big appeal.”
Polsenberg is past president of both the State Bar of Nevada and the Clark County Bar. Twenty years ago, he was inducted as the first Nevadan to be a fellow of the Appellate Academy. Polsenberg is the second Lewis Roca lawyer to serve as President of the organization.
