Appellate Advocacy and Guidance
In every appeal, different courts, judges, and rules require a fundamental shift in the strategies and skills required to achieve litigation success. Led by former Minnesota Supreme Court Chief Justice Eric J. Magnuson, our appellate advocacy and guidance attorneys bring an impressive record of experience and achievement to the new reality an appeal creates. At Robins Kaplan LLP, we serve both existing firm clients and clients represented at trial by other counsel by providing case assessment and strategic appeal guidance. We also provide insight and input on brief preparation and oral advocacy. Whether we represent the appellant or a client responding to an appeal, our ability to synthesize and analyze the case, the record, and the controlling standards of review can significantly aid in the creation of compelling arguments that earn judicial and client trust as well as precedential victories.
Our experience helps clients navigate the complexities of the appellate system in an effective and cost-efficient manner. Our appellate attorneys have handled appeals in state and federal courts across the country, including the Federal Circuit. Practice leader Eric Magnuson has earned a high profile in the world of appellate courts, having served as the President of the American Academy of Appellate Lawyers, the founding President of the 8th Circuit Bar Association, and co-chair of several ABA and state bar appellate advocacy committees. He has also authored and edited several leading texts on appellate law and practice, including Federal Appeals: Jurisdiction and Practice, the Eighth Circuit Appellate Practice Manual; and Minnesota Practice: Appellate Rules Annotated. Our clients benefit from our tactical approach and the depth of insight and unique perspectives available only to a former state supreme court chief justice.
If you are interested in having us represent you, you should call us so we can determine whether the matter is one for which we are willing or able to accept professional responsibility. We will not make this determination by e-mail communication. The telephone numbers and addresses for our offices are listed on this page. We reserve the right to decline any representation. We may be required to decline representation if it would create a conflict of interest with our other clients.
By accepting these terms, you are confirming that you have read and understood this important notice.
