t Anderson, Rasor & Partners, LLP, our appellate practice encompasses more than drafting appellate briefs and arguing before the reviewing courts. To ensure preservation of issues for appeal in the many high-exposure cases that the firm handles, appellate counsel is frequently consulted about, and often takes over the handling of, dispositive motions seeking dismissal or summary judgment, as well as issues that often lead to an interlocutory appeal, such as forum non conveniens motions and discovery objections.
The assistance of our appellate practice is also sought during trial when novel issues arise with respect to the admission or exclusion of evidence or the preparation of jury instructions. Once trial is completed, appellate counsel becomes involved in preparing and arguing post-trial motions, particularly in cases where an appeal is anticipated.
Our appellate counsel has a broad range of experience, including extensive knowledge in the areas of professional liability and railroad practice cases. Additionally, our experience includes all areas of civil law, including: breach of contract, insurance coverage, lease agreements, governmental immunity, spoliation of evidence and general tort. Further, our appellate practice is not limited to handling appeals arising from cases handled by Anderson, Rasor & Partners, LLP, trial attorneys; a significant number of appeals have come to our firm at the appeal stage to take advantage of the experience and expertise offered by our appellate practice.
