Appellate Practice

Stewart Smith’s Appellate Practice Group complements our vast complex litigation expertise and enables us to provide cutting-edge written and oral advocacy throughout a full spectrum of industries. We contribute the specialized analytical skills inherent in appellate practice to the very beginning of disputed matters, designing litigation strategies that withstand appellate review at any stage.

Our team includes law professors who have taught substantive legal concepts and practical skills to both attorneys and law students. Our ubiquitous presence in multiple federal and state jurisdictions breeds an intimate knowledge of not only the local rules of practice and standards of review, but also of the character and makeup of the local bench and bar. This varied expertise allows Stewart Smith advocates to identify legal issues, craft concise, effective appellate briefs, and to present compelling arguments in order to maximize the likelihood of prevailing.
