Practices

Litigation

Appellate

We represent litigants in state and federal court appeals, including in the United States Courts of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit and the Federal Circuit, and the California Supreme Court and various Courts of Appeal. We have successfully overturned judgments and injunctions entered against parties represented by other counsel in the trial court, as well as preserved trial court successes. We also have extensive experience pursuing mid-litigation appellate writs and stays.
