Appealing a trial court decision is a high-stakes and often precedent-setting scenario—with the potential for profound business ramifications. With the time and cost involved and the risk of unfavorable outcomes, “double or nothing” can often feel like your reality.
That’s where we come in.
Whether we’re drafting and arguing critical motions, or presenting arguments before the Supreme Court, our leading team of appellate lawyers can engage on your behalf at every level of the judicial system. Equipped to handle the highest stakes appeals in forums across the country, we provide clients the agile counsel necessary to tackle substantial, multilayered challenges. And we’re always thinking ahead on your behalf by ensuring all trial issues are properly preserved for appeal.
Members of our team have presented arguments before the Supreme Court more than a dozen times, including in each of the Court’s last five Terms. We have argued on behalf of our clients in all 13 federal courts of appeals, as well as state appellate courts throughout the country. These appeals have involved a wide array of constitutional, statutory and regulatory issues affecting antitrust, intellectual property, bankruptcy, employment matters, tax disputes and more.
To us, collaboration is key to success. To meet your goals, we work cooperatively alongside trial counsel and subject matter experts to ensure seamless representation.
Regardless of forum or industry, our goal is singular: to provide our clients the highest quality briefing and oral advocacy through the appellate process, which we strive to make as easy as possible.
We regularly litigate challenges to actions by administrative agencies that impact our clients. Lawsuits under the Administrative Procedure Act and related statutes are, in form and function, appeals from agency proceedings. We have broad experience handling administrative matters on diverse topics relating to manufacturing, energy, health care, high-skilled immigration, pharmaceuticals, technology and more.
Working collaboratively with our clients, we tell a persuasive, fact-based story that integrates legal theory with practical realities.
When a government regulates our clients’ interests at the local, state or federal level, it is essential to consider innovative constitutional remedies. The First Amendment provides powerful protections for commercial speech. The Commerce Clause limits Congress’s authority, and it likewise restrains state and local government power to regulate outside their borders. The Fifth Amendment preserves essential property interests. Constitutional protections—sometimes familiar, sometimes arcane—can provide a path to victory.
We bring our unrivaled experience and creativity to bear on the most difficult legal challenges our clients face.
