Supreme Court & Appellate Practice
Bernstein Liebhard LLP (the “Firm”) maintains an appellate practice group that focuses on amicus (“friend of the court”) briefing in significant cases affecting the Firm’s clients before the United States Supreme Court, the federal courts of appeal, and the state courts of appeal, in addition to appeals in cases in which the Firm represented a party in a lower court.
The Firm’s Supreme Court and Appellate Practice Group is comprised of attorneys who possess the experience and knowledge required to provide the highest quality appellate representation to the Firm’s clients.
Of particular importance is the experience in the lower courts the attorneys in the Supreme Court and Appellate Practice Group have, thereby allowing the Firm to create a comprehensive litigation strategy at every stage of a litigation. Many of the attorneys in this Practice Group also litigate actions in the Firm’s other practice areas, giving them a greater understanding of the issues on appeal. This experience enables the attorneys in this Practice Group to determine early in the litigation the issues that may need appellate review, and develop strategies to make a record of them.
