Gardere’s Appellate practice group does not just handle appeals, but instead is involved in all stages of litigation, both in the trial courts and appellate courts.

Our appeals attorneys are consultants to trial counsel at nearly every stage of litigation. They frequently assist trial counsel with discovery disputes, dispositive motions, the jury charge and preparation of proposed judgments – in addition to assisting with pretrial and trial strategy in general.

Our appellate litigation team also handles domestic and international matters in the state and federal appellate courts all across the country – whether the cases are tried by Gardere lawyers or by outside counsel – and they deal with all aspects of post-trial and appellate litigation, including mediation, supersedeas issues and amicus briefs.

  • Administrative
  • Class action
  • Commercial
  • Construction
  • Copyright
  • Employment
  • Entertainment
  • Financial Restructuring and Reorganization
  • Government contracts
  • Insurance coverage
  • Intellectual property
  • Oil and gas

  • Personal injury
  • Products liability
  • Trusts and estates

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
