Our appellate team represents public and private companies, individuals, nonprofit organizations and industry trade groups on all types of civil and administrative appeals in state and federal courts. We have often been entrusted with bet-the-company appeals as well as appeals on substantive issues important to clients or their industries. We have earned a reputation as a go-to firm for complex litigation in franchise, real estate, environmental, construction, insurance, labor and employment, products liability, antitrust and intellectual property law, all areas of strength for our firm.
Our appellate lawyers are also skilled trial lawyers who bring that perspective to bear in appeals that arise from cases tried to judgment. It is a great advantage to have appellate lawyers with trial experience assisting on matters headed for trial. This is especially the case when it comes to creating a record at trial that can be critical to pursuing an argument on appeal. Our appellate lawyers also provide advice on pleadings, discovery and motions at the trial level and assist with post-trial motions.
