Handling appeals is not a job for just any litigator.
A successful appeals practice requires a unique set of skills, a thoughtful approach, and intensely persuasive writing talents.
Palmersheim & Mathew attorneys have the right mix of talent, boasting successful appeals in all areas of their litigation practice, including antitrust, intellectual property, and commercial litigation.
We are skilled at building effective appellate records before cases even reach the appeal stage, as well as in consulting, evaluating, and taking over appeals handled by other law firms following unsatisfactory results at the trial court level.
The team’s strong appeals background includes substantial experience taking cases to state and federal appellate courts and achieving successful outcomes before the U.S. Supreme Court and numerous courts of appeal. Our attorneys have also handled countless amicus briefs for clients and parties interested in advocating for policy affecting their business interests.
We recently won a complete reversal in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit on the issue of antitrust standing. In the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, we earned the distinction of having won two consecutive appeals of a district court’s “exceptional case” finding, resulting in the complete reversal of a multimillion-dollar judgment against our client. In the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, we obtained affirmance of a multimillion-dollar judgment, including an award of attorneys’ fees and interest amounting to nearly $2 million.
