practiced at Am Law 100 firms
SouthBank Legal strategizes with clients at all stages of litigation to frame issues for an ultimately successful outcome. Our team is highly credentialed--each member of our appellate practice clerked on a federal court of appeals. While we win many cases at trial, our appellate attorneys also set us up for pre- or post-trial wins. Their strategic insight increases the odds of an early victory, mitigates legal risk, and prepares for winning appellate arguments.
SouthBank Legal’s appellate attorneys recognize that a successful argument on appeal begins with strategizing and framing the issues effectively at the pretrial stage to set the client up for success in a potential appeal. We work closely with our clients at the outset of litigation to address legal issues in motions practice in trial court and follow through to obtain successful ultimate resolution of the issues on appeal. In other cases, companies hire SouthBank Legal to appeal an unsuccessful result in prior litigation. Our appellate clients come from all industries and involve a variety of legal issues under state and federal law, including criminal appeals, employment issues, and commercial disputes.
Our appellate attorneys have deep experience in appellate courts nationwide. The leaders of our appellate practice group have handled appeals, for the United States Department of Justice and in private practice, in every federal circuit and many state appellate courts. Our appellate attorneys honed their skills at Am Law 100 firms and elite litigation boutiques. And every member of our appellate practice group clerked for at least one judge on federal courts of appeals. Collectively, SouthBank Legal’s attorneys have handled well over 100 appeals across the country.
Our attorneys’ successful appeals have involved nuanced and sophisticated cases dealing with confidentiality of medical records, issues of criminal procedure and substantive law, intricate questions of federal taxation, defense of companies accused of employment discrimination, complicated insurance-coverage questions, and complex trust and estate issues.
Our appellate team is collaborative, appreciates the various facets of trial practice, and understands the language of appeals. They know how to distill the complex issues of trial into a compelling narrative and legal argument. Whatever the issue, SouthBank Legal’s Appellate Practice Group is poised to assist.REQUEST A CALL WITH Conor
