Appellate Law

Herzfeld + Rubin’s team of appellate lawyers has a proven record of successfully handling hundreds of appeals involving high-stakes, cutting-edge legal analysis throughout the country, including before the U.S. Supreme Court, the Second Circuit Court of Appeals, the New York Court of Appeals, every appellate court in the State of New York and other appellate tribunals nationwide. We pride ourselves on spearheading the presentation of complex constitutional, statutory and public-policy issues, and the creation of widely-followed legal precedent. It is our unparalleled experience that leads clients to trust us with their appeals, even when we did not handle the underlying litigation. We have also prepared numerous amicus curiae briefs on behalf of clients which include companies, government entities, trade associations, and individuals. Our multidisciplinary experience and uniquely informed perspective has afforded us the opportunity to influence and develop federal and state law throughout the nation’s federal and state courts.

The legal acumen of our appellate advocacy team goes far beyond merely drafting briefs. Where appropriate, our clients are advised not to pursue a particular appeal, or to resolve an action on appeal, where analysis suggests such an approach is in a client’s best interests. Our group also consults with and advises the firm’s litigation attorneys with respect to legal analyses and legal research, and the preparation of dispositive and other crucial or sensitive motions, in order to preserve critical issues which may be ripe for appellate review. By supporting a coordinated litigation team, the attorneys of the Appellate Law group ensure that the best possible results are secured in the most cost-effective manner.
