As appellate counsel, we have represented clients in hundreds of appeals in both federal and state appellate courts across all of the firm’s substantive practice areas. While most of our work arises out of our trial practice, we are also regularly retained to prepare amicus (or “friend of the court”) briefs on legal issues of far-reaching significance, to evaluate the merits of potential appeals, and to provide second opinions in complex matters tried by other counsel.

For decades, our appellate team has represented clients in high-profile cases and in appeals that present issues of first impression, including appeals arising out of: environmental justice issues; the fiduciary duties owed by shareholders in closely held corporations; the assignability of legal malpractice claims; the standard for proving “defamation by conduct;” the standards governing attorneys in law firm dissolutions; the burden of proof in automobile crashworthiness cases; standards for expert testimony on alleged product defects; the circumstances under which insurers may be found to have waived coverage defenses, or to be estopped from asserting them; the scope of the executive privilege as applied to discovery requests; and the parameters of the “discovery rule” as applied to statutes of limitations. Whether we served as counsel from the outset of a case or were retained after trial, our seasoned appellate attorneys have the skills and expertise to achieve success on appeal.
