Frantz Ward lawyers have substantial experience and expertise in handling appellate matters in state and federal courts nationwide. Our appellate attorneys also handle litigation at the trial court level, and are adept at identifying judicial error and legal issues in order to most effectively position them for appellate review. Because the lawyers in this practice group come from all of our litigation-related practice areas, we are able to represent clients at the appellate level in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
Our appellate lawyers have applied their written and oral advocacy skills to the gamut of substantive legal issues, including matters involving business-related contractual disputes, employment discrimination and harassment claims, product liability, insurance coverage, health care, ERISA, real estate, antitrust, intentional torts, business torts, choice of law, bankruptcy, and the scope of the attorney-client privilege. In addition to representing parties to appellate proceedings, we have advocated on behalf of clients participating in appeals as amicus curiae. The attorneys in our Appellate Practice Group include several who have clerked for appellate judges.
