Bartlett’s appellate practice group is dedicated to appellate advocacy, including evaluating and litigating appeals and seeking stays of underlying proceedings while an appeal is pending. Bartlett has achieved consistently excellent results in the field of appellate advocacy. We pride ourselves on the impact that we have had on the development of law in areas of concern to our insurance, professional and construction clientele. In recent years, our firm has handled numerous appeals and argued in every New York State Appellate Court, including the Court of Appeals. We routinely handle appeals involving a wide range of issues including labor law, contractual indemnification, grave injury, insurance coverage, professional liability, products liability and general negligence. Attorneys from our appellate practice group are frequently invited to lecture before various bar groups and client gatherings regarding recent developments in the law. Likewise, our appeals group enjoys a unique synergy with the firm’s litigators and trial attorneys. The teams work in unison throughout the pre-trial and trial stages, pro-actively confronting issues that are likely to be raised on appeal.
