We advise on the merits of an appeal, recommend the strategy to be adopted and appear in court as counsel.
Why engage an appellate specialist? An appellate specialist brings detached, critical analysis to a concluded first instance case and helps identify, preserve and protect issues necessary to prevail on appeal. Our lawyers have experience in:
Challenging or supporting the application of precedents and statutory provisions to facts;
Legal research and written advocacy to persuade the re-examination of an existing decision and in anticipating how an appellate court may react to a challenge to the reasoning in existing decisions; and
Navigating the rules and procedure governing appeals.
