Appellate Litigation Set The Record Straight
Successful appellate litigation requires attorneys with specialized skills and unique experience. Kilpatrick Townsend’s appellate litigators offer a combination of brief writing expertise, strategic judgment, and oral advocacy that allow clients to defend a hard-won victory or overturn an unfortunate loss in the trial court. Our appellate litigators have briefed and argued cases in the Supreme Court, all 13 U.S. Courts of Appeals, and numerous state supreme and intermediary appellate courts. We also assist trial attorneys with dispositive motions, issue preservation, trial support, jury instructions, and post-trial motions. Our team represents clients who the firm represented at trial, as well as clients who hired us solely to handle their appeal. We handle the full spectrum of legal issues — from constitutional cases to business disputes and class actions to water law and Native American law — including high-stakes cases involving complex issues, which have established new precedents, generated headline news, and garnered national recognition.
