BMD has a distinguished history of appellate practice before state and federal appeals courts. Having received national recognition for appellate advocacy, and applying the knowledge acquired while clerking for appellate and lower courts, our attorneys stand in a unique position to assist clients through the appeals-court process. Whether we are protecting a hard-won trial victory, overturning an adverse judgment, laying the groundwork for a successful trial or winning without even having to go to one, BMD's team takes a comprehensive approach to guide our clients through the entire process. Our goal with every case is to develop the most successful and innovative appellate strategy for our clients facing complex legal and business challenges.
BMD's appellate practice group complements the talents of the firm's specialized practice disciplines to effectively achieve the client's litigation and business objectives. Our appellate attorneys collaborate with the litigation team to tailor litigation strategy. We have appeared on behalf of clients at all phases of proceedings and at the highest levels of jurisdictions, submitted petitions for certiorari, appellate briefs, motions to the appellate courts and have argued before them. Having presided over the client’s matter initially in the lower-court proceedings or engaged exclusively at the appellate level, BMD's appellate attorneys are able to effectively identify the appealable issues and prosecute or defend the same.
Our appellate clients include businesses and individuals that encompass a large spectrum of legal issues.
Areas of service include:
- Commercial litigation
- Labor and employment law
- Construction law
- Medical malpractice
- Bankruptcy law
- Breach of fiduciary-duty claims
