The National Law Journal

At every juncture, we provide crisp, compelling, and engaging written and oral analysis and advocacy with unparalleled responsiveness. From our seasoned and heralded leaders to our well-credentialed counsel and associates, members of the Appeals and Strategic Counseling practice bring precision, creativity, and judgment to bear on our clients’ hardest issues and most critical problems.

Where We Excel

Our team has experience in all areas of commercial litigation, both substantive and procedural, with particular expertise in bankruptcy, intellectual property, antitrust, securities, and constitutional law.

What We Do

We are often called upon to litigate questions of first impression and develop or refute novel legal theories, interpret complex statutes and regulations, and cut through scientific, technological, and economic issues in a clear and accessible way.

Working seamlessly with other Weil litigators, we also provide overarching strategic advice throughout the lifespan of our clients’ controversies, helping to achieve litigation and business objectives while mitigating risk.

Members of our practice regularly participate in lawsuits—often class actions or other complex commercial litigation—before, during, and after trial. We also help assess whether litigation is advisable, provide strategic counseling regarding threatened and ongoing litigation, and prepare white papers and similar analyses outside the litigation context.
