Kyle Anne Gray Elected to the American Academy of Appellate Lawyers

Holland & Hart attorney Kyle Anne Gray has been elected as a Fellow of the American Academy of Appellate Lawyers (AAAL). Membership in the AAAL is by invitation only, limited to 500 members in the United States, and offered to experienced appellate attorneys who have demonstrated the highest excellence in appellate service and integrity. One of only four AAAL members in Montana, Kyle will be inducted at the AAAL’s 2018 Annual Meeting on Oct. 5-6.

The AAAL was founded in 1990 to recognize outstanding appellate lawyers and promote the improvement of appellate advocacy and the administration of appellate courts. Prospective members must be nominated by a current Fellow, vetted by the legal and judicial communities, and elected to the fellowship by the AAAL Board of Directors.

“Kyle is a well-respected member of the appellate community in Montana and nationwide, particularly in the environmental and natural resource arena. She is highly regarded by judges and advocates alike for her creative arguments and persuasive advocacy,” said Maureen Reidy Witt, the firm’s Commercial Litigation Practice Group Leader. “Kyle has also generously devoted hundreds of pro bono hours on appeals ranging from multiple constitutional challenges in partnership with the ACLU, to representing a single father and member of the Crow Tribe all the way to the United States Supreme Court seeking to overturn a state court criminal elk hunting conviction contrary to tribal hunting rights preserved in a 150-year old treaty. Kyle epitomizes the value of our firm, and our profession, that we owe a special obligation to those in our community who could not otherwise engage with the courts. On behalf of the firm, I extend our deepest congratulations to Kyle.”

Recognized as a leading appellate lawyer in Montana, Kyle specializes in complex civil litigation and appellate advocacy with an emphasis on environmental and natural resources litigation, including environmental insurance coverage litigation. She has participated in Superfund trial litigation and has trial experience in a variety of environmental, property, and business matters. Kyle has extensive appellate experience, including a wide array of cases briefed or argued to the United States Supreme Court, the Ninth and Tenth Circuit Federal Courts of Appeals, and the Montana and Wyoming Supreme Courts.
