The Sheehan Phinney Appellate Litigation Group represents clients from a broad array of industries in commercial appeals in both the federal and state appellate courts.  We handle appeals both in cases where we have litigated the dispute from the outset and in cases where we are retained to take over a case from another lawyer or firm at the appellate stage.

Our appellate lawyers take a thoughtful, rigorous and strategic approach to appellate work – evaluating the scope of possible arguments, and advancing only those with the best chance of success.  Emphasizing in-depth legal research, clear, concise, well-developed and well-structured written argument, and compelling and responsive oral advocacy, our team of experienced appellate litigators delivers results.

Our attorneys have had many decades of success prosecuting and defending appeals in the First, Second, Third, Seventh, Eighth and Ninth Circuit Courts of Appeals, the New Hampshire Supreme Court, the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, the Connecticut Supreme Court, as well as the Massachusetts and Connecticut intermediate appellate courts.
