Wilson Elser has assembled a talented and dedicated group of appellate attorneys throughout its office network who can step in and bring the litigation cycle to a satisfactory conclusion.

Wilson Elser’s Appellate practice has successfully handled thousands of appeals in both federal and state courts throughout the country. We understand the highly technical and evolving discipline of appellate procedure and how to most effectively bring our knowledge to bear on behalf of our clients.

Wilson Elser’s appellate work can begin well before trial, as our attorneys are available to research and draft dispositive pretrial motions, motions in limine, jury instructions and post-trial motions. We are able to accommodate clients who ask us to collaborate with trial counsel to help ensure that issues are preserved for appellate review and ask that cases are given a fresh and objective look. Our work is informed largely by an appreciation for the appellate panel’s responsibility not only to decide the case before it but also to create the law that will govern future cases. Our appellate attorneys’ successes have the potential to guide the development of law favorable to our clients and result in significant reductions in damages awards.

Known for their clear and persuasive briefs, their strong oral advocacy and their sensitivity to cost containment, our appellate attorneys provide forceful advocacy and innovative solutions to meet our clients’ needs.
