Civil Appeals and Writ Practice
A successful Appellate practice is premised on skilled research, a detailed understanding of the relevant legal issues, superior analytical writing skills necessary to effectively advocate the need for appellate review, as well as confident and experienced oral advocacy to present complex legal concepts. Our extensive legal background in various areas of the law and oral advocacy skills provide the highest level of appellate representation and success.
The Appellate Practice Group handles appeals and writs from any type of litigation involving various legal issues including insurance coverage (duty to defend) and indemnity, class action certification and representational standing, jurisdictional requirements, U.S. Constitution Article III standing and due process rights, punitive damage awards, attorney fee awards, including the recovery of pre and post-judgment interest, and the application of Chapter 40 remedies in Nevada and SB 800 in California in the context of construction defect.
Our Appellate attorneys are available to draft Amicus Curiae briefs to educate appellate courts regarding how the outcome of significant legal issues will impact individuals and businesses, not before the appellate court. Our Amicus briefs identify specific issues and seek to shape and clarify the law benefiting our clients and the industries we represent, including the insurance, hotel and construction industries. We recognize an appeal can be a path to achieving the larger goal of establishing precedent, providing significant economic consequences to our clients.
