When Davis Graham & Stubbs LLP clients become involved in an appeal – either as a party to the appeal or as a “friend of the court” – they rely on a core group of DGS lawyers who possess specialized appellate experience and outstanding analytical, brief writing, and oral advocacy skills. Under the leadership of experienced appellate lawyer Andrew Low, our attorneys have argued on appeal in a number of industries a broad variety of complex legal issues, including administrative procedure, advertising, arbitration, commercial leases, constitutional law, construction, contracts, employment discrimination, environmental cleanup, evidence, fraud, insurance, land use, the Lanham Act, legal malpractice, libel and slander, medical malpractice, mining, patents, pension benefits, personal injury, products liability, property tax, public utilities regulation, railroads, sanctions, securities, shareholder derivative actions, ski resorts, sales, telecommunications and use tax, trademarks, and unfair competition.
Our appellate attorneys work closely with DGS trial lawyers to anticipate issues that may arise on appeal. They also undertake appeals or write amicus curiae briefs in cases that have been handled by another firm at the trial level. Our appellate lawyers routinely pursue or defend interlocutory appeals, advise on preserving a trial record for appeal, draft appellate briefs, and make oral arguments in federal and state appellate courts.
