Appellate and Supreme Court Litigation

Clients pressing or defending an appeal value three things in an appellate lawyer: intellect, pragmatism, and presence. Our appellate team’s lawyers fulfill all three. They are skilled at briefing complex issues in plain English. They deliver clear and compelling oral arguments. And they frame their appellate strategies with the client’s business always in mind. 

Featured for several years running on The National Law Journal’s Appellate Hot List, and with Chambers-ranked partners co-heading the practice, the team’s focus cuts across all areas of the firm’s client base. We handle cases involving constitutional challenges, administrative procedure, patent law, and white collar defense work, among many other areas. We maintain a regular presence in the Supreme Court, federal courts of appeals, and state appellate courts.
