Appeals and Mandamus Proceedings

  • Lead counsel on appeal. Serve as lead counsel in all appellate proceedings in state and federal civil courts.
  • Co-counsel on appeal. If there are reasons for others to be lead appellate, we are willing to provide advice and support as co-counsel while others have primary responsibilities.
  • Collaboration on briefs. Circulate briefs before filing to an in-house team of readers, who scrutinize and edit to improve both form and substance.
  • Collaboration in oral argument preparation. Hold in-house moot courts before oral argument to anticipate questions, discuss the most effective answers, and receive feedback from a panel of colleagues who read the briefs much as the appellate judges will.
