When a plaintiff or defendant in a high-value commercial dispute receives what appears to be an unjust or erroneous verdict in a civil trial, it can be critical to consider the potential for appeal very soon afterward. Appellate law is a complex, unique area that requires an attorney with solid knowledge of appellate court procedures, refined analytical skill and the ability to construct powerful legal briefs.
