Litigation Consulting

Having an outside appellate lawyer on your high-stakes litigation team can be a game-changer.

The cost-benefit of our litigation consulting is a no-brainer

We don’t appear in the trial courts, but rather operate behind the scenes to help litigators and trial lawyers win the first time — presenting arguments with clarity and brevity, and ensuring cases are as strong as they can be for an eventual appeal.

Avoid mistakes that can ruin your chances of success on appeal

We can help trial lawyers preserve their records and avoid missing critical objections.

Get help drafting motions, proposed rulings, jury instructions, and everything else

It’s always best to win the first time, and you can protect favorable judgments better knowing how they’ll be reviewed.

Shadow counsel at trial

It never hurts to have a secret weapon, like an appellate lawyer who can write and think about issues and techniques most trial lawyers don’t.

Articles we’ve published with advice for trial lawyers

Anything that can go wrong in a trial, we’ve seen go wrong in a trial — trial court errors are the basis for every appeal. Our lawyers have published articles to help trial lawyers avoid some of those pitfalls, take advantage of mistakes their opponents make, and protect their records for appeal.

Let's talk about how we can help you now, so we can better help you later.

Some trial litigators bring us in as early as the first dispositive motion in the case. Others bring us in for summary judgment or as appellate support during trial. The earlier we’re embedded, the more help we can give and the better record we can help you prepare for appeal.
