Bailey Glasser lawyers have handled appeals in virtually every substantive area, including ERISA, antitrust, class actions, environmental law, international law, and criminal law. Whether briefing and presenting oral argument themselves or providing consulting services for trial lawyers handling an appeal, Bailey Glasser strengthens the client’s presentation to appellate courts anywhere in the United States.

Long before any appeal is taken or even before suit is filed, we identify and evaluate appellate issues likely to arise, then follow up with trial consulting and support. An appellate lawyer on a trial team can assist in presenting the best possible case to the jury, while providing invaluable perspective on preservation of issues for appeal. We comprehensively understand what it takes to persuade appellate judges, and, toward that end, what it will take to build the right record to put the client’s best foot forward.
