Appellate

Taking the next steps.

Round Two is every bit as important as the trial proceedings below. Husch Blackwell knows what it takes to prevail on appeal, and our attorneys bring fresh thinking and concise, intelligent arguments into the courtroom on clients’ behalf. Our team has successfully handled appeals in virtually all substantive areas of the law in state and federal courts nationwide.

In addition to arguing vigorously in court on behalf of clients, our Appellate team prepares jury instructions, post-trial motions, transfer applications and writ petitions. We are available to consult with trial attorneys during trial preparation or the trial itself, as decisions made at those stages of a case may determine the outcome on appeal.
