Appellate Law

“Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding.”
~Albert Einstein

Our participation in the defense of our clients extends through appeal, as several of our lawyers are admitted to practice before the U.S. Supreme Court.

We have substantial experience drafting filings for this highest court, including petitions for certiorari and amicus curiae briefs as well as drafting appellate briefs and assisting in the preparation for oral argument in other federal and state appellate courts.

We also have worked with industry associations and manufacturers in the filing of amicus briefs in appellate cases. Our attorneys also brief and argue complex matters, such as the protection of trade secrets from discovery, and coordinate extraordinary mandamus relief where necessary.
