Overview

Munsch Hardt has a long track record of appellate victories that advance our clients’ interests.

By combining our skills in crafting persuasive briefs and presenting oral argument, with extensive experience guiding high-stakes appellate matters, we have obtained notable results for our clients. Our lawyers are well versed in the nuance of the appellate process and know how to navigate a case effectively. There is, of course, no “one size fits all” approach for handling an appeal. Defending a hard-fought trial judgment may require a different approach than challenging a statute’s constitutionality. Our practice is equipped for any appellate challenge.

Our appellate experience spans all areas of our litigation practice, with notable victories in the areas of administrative, antitrust, bankruptcy, creditors rights, energy, environmental, labor and employment, financial services, insurance, patent, product liability, and securities law. Because of our substantive knowledge and deep experience, in addition to conventional appeals, we routinely serve as counsel in interlocutory appeals and in matters involving mandamus and other extraordinary writs. We also have experience preparing amicus briefs in important cases to address legal issues in which our clients have a vested interest. 

Our team also conducts pre-suit case evaluations, drafts summary judgment and other case dispositive motions, drafts jury charges, handles jury charge conferences, and ensures preservation of error during trial. Post-trial, we assist in judgment formation, post-trial motions and judgment enforcement.

Whether we represent a party in the lower court or we are brought in specifically for our appellate capabilities, our attorneys regularly serve as counsel for corporations, trade associations, public interest groups and industry groups at every stage in the process.
