Our lawyers have successfully handled appeals in many judicial forums, including the U.S. Supreme Court, U.S. Courts of Appeal (Second, Third, Ninth, Tenth, D.C. and Federal Circuits), California Supreme Court, California Court of Appeal, New York Supreme Court Appellate Division, Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB), Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB), and United Kingdom Supreme Court.

At BNSK, we efficiently and cost-effectively prepare and argue appeals, delivering optimal outcomes for our clients.  Our lawyers not only excel in skilled advocacy at the appellate level but also bring the expertise of seasoned trial lawyers.  We adeptly review lower court trial records for appellate issues, and are able to negotiate favorable settlements on appeal, ensuring a comprehensive and strategic approach.
