Appellate

Guiding You Through Every Stage of the Appeals Process

When you're appealing a court decision, your law firm needs to know the appeals processes at every level. Our attorneys have appeared in cases before the US Supreme Court, US Circuit Courts of Appeal, and numerous state appellate courts. We leverage our broad, substantive appeals experience to guide clients through the process. That's why a pharmaceutical company entrusted Mintz with its appeal — and recovered $7 million in compensation from a disloyal former CEO.

Our Experience

Case Study
Mintz’s victory in a trial before the SEC’s Chief Administrative Law Judge cleared a former State Street executive of charges related to the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. After the SEC overturned the decision, the First Circuit’s reversal of the Commission made new law.
Case Study
Mintz secured two MA federal court wins and one at the First Circuit for Vertex Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and several senior executives in a securities case about clinical trial result disclosures. The decision clarified the First Circuit standard for pleading scienter in securities fraud cases.
Case Study
Mintz’s US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit win for NextGen affirmed a lower court’s dismissal of a patent infringement case targeting NextGen’s Patient Portal program. The appellate court affirmed that patents directed to longstanding methods of organizing human activity are unpatentable.
