Appellate Practice

Appellate Practice


We provide a full array of appellate services. These include interlocutory (pre-trial or non-final) appeals, and post-trial appeals. Interlocutory appeals arise to a significant extent from denials of motions for summary judgment.

A post-trial appeal is generally preceded by a motion to set aside the verdict on the ground that the verdict was irrational, against the weight of the credible evidence, or monetarily excessive.

We have litigated appeals in New York’s intermediate appellate courts, (the Appellate Division), the State’s highest court (the Court of Appeals), and the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.

We also work with economists to challenge (by motion or negotiation) methodologies used by plaintiffs’ attorneys (under New York’s obtuse statutes – CPLR Articles 50A and 50B) to calculate reductions to present value, of future damages.
