Zealous. Determined. Relentless.

Appellate work is a dynamic and growing component of our litigation practice. The overwhelming majority of our work in this field derives from clients suffering an adverse economic result at the trial level who believe they can benefit from a new perspective and/or a new approach.

Our extensive experience in all things economic makes our Appellate group particularly attuned to the financial realities and sensitivities inherent in any adverse monetary judgment. Still, at its core, appellate work involves making an argument, and a more compelling argument than your adversary. This involves conceptualizing, strategizing, articulating and then effectuating.

The appellate brief is the central, most critical element of any appeal. That’s where we shine.

Forman Holt’s attorneys are renowned for their creativity and their resourcefulness in the conceptual and tactical phases, but that is only half of the appellate battle. Even the best reasoned or most novel argument has to be articulated in a way that is convincing, compelling and applied to the facts before the Court. It is in that milieu, the appellate brief, where Forman Holt’s appellate team truly excels.

The appellate brief is the central, most critical element of any appeal, where all of the thought, sweat and analysis is condensed into a single cohesive and integrated product that is presented to the appellate tribunal with no other purpose than leading the Court to the inescapable conclusion that our client should prevail on the appeal.

Forman Holt’s attorneys are widely regarded as skilled draftsman and tacticians in the structure and composition of briefs that are intended to persuade.

  • Talented appellate lawyers who think like appellate judges
