BakerHostetler’s appellate lawyers are well-respected for their appellate advocacy skills, and our attorneys have received such honors as Appellate Lawyer of the Year in Cleveland for 2013 and 2014. Moreover, we have a highly regarded Supreme Court practice and we are frequently asked to provide testimony to committees of Congress regarding current issues of constitutional and international law. The exceptional work of our appellate team can be seen in the respect and accolades that we receive from clients and within the appellate community. Clients have said that our attorneys are "renowned for their strength in appellate law."
Our appellate team analyzes trial records for legal issues that can be raised on appeal, drafts and reviews appellate briefs, presents oral arguments, and submits amicus briefs. Our appellate lawyers have substantive knowledge and well-honed analytical written and oral advocacy skills that are essential to a successful appeal. Clients appreciate our fresh perspective and critical insight, as well as our emphasis on concise and persuasive written arguments.
In addition to our legal representation in federal and state appellate courts, we also assist trial teams with the identification of potential appellate challenges during the initial stages of litigation. We are often called upon to advise clients on complex issues at the trial court level, and to analyze trial issues strategically to protect the record on appeal or to preserve issues for appeal.
