Appellate Practice

We frequently appear in state and federal appellate courts throughout the United States.

The appellate practice of our lawyers spans the entire range of the firm’s litigation practice — from environmental and utilities cases, to commercial, personal injury and employment and civil rights litigation. We regularly handle both appeals from the trial courts and various special appellate proceedings, such as original appellate proceedings to review administrative rulemakings or adjudications. We represent the parties themselves, as well as amici curiae, such as trade organizations, with an interest in the issues raised on appeal.

Our lawyers are also experienced in assuming responsibility for appeals in cases handled at the trial-court level by attorneys from outside the firm, giving clients fresh perspectives geared towards success in the process.
