Appellate

Dinsmore offers nationwide appellate experience unique to firms of its size and geographic scope. This appellate experience includes high-stakes business disputes, government investigations, class action litigation, healthcare cases, labor and employment matters, patent litigation, and numerous other constitutional, statutory, and administrative law cases.

Our team consists of a former appellate attorney for the U.S. Department of Justice and other experienced attorneys, who collectively have argued cases before the United States Supreme Court, each of the 13 U.S. Circuit Courts of Appeals, and numerous state supreme and appellate courts. This experienced team formulates, briefs, and argues complex legal questions that determine whether an appeal will be successful—including the drafting of initial pleadings, briefing dispositive motions, and handling appeals of final judgments. Dinsmore attorneys understand when to start planning for a potential appeal.

The firm’s appellate attorneys also have substantial experience taking over cases at the appeal stage and achieving positive results for clients. These attorneys know a successful appellate strategy requires reassessment of an entire case and its litigation strategy to make best use of—or take aim at—the key rulings of the trial court.

Whatever the legal issue or the jurisdiction, Dinsmore’s Appellate Practice Group has the experience to help our clients accomplish more.
