Based in New York and other international hubs, our appellate lawyers offer a sophisticated understanding of the unique needs of international clients pursuing appeals. We have appeared in courts of appeals across the United States including at the certiorari and merits stages in the Supreme Court, as well as in appellate courts in jurisdictions worldwide. Several of our appellate lawyers have clerked for judges at different levels of the judicial system.
Our appellate representations span a diverse array of clients from foreign sovereigns and sovereign wealth funds to public and private corporations. We have a wealth of experience handling appeals involving enforcement of international arbitration awards, foreign sovereign immunity, international trade, securities litigation, bankruptcy, economic sanctions, constitutional law, and national security issues, among others. And we have achieved major precedent-setting victories in high-stakes appeals.
Our competitive edge in appellate litigation stems from our integrated approach to handling disputes. While we count on the expertise of dedicated appellate lawyers with decades of combined experience, our litigators are actively engaged throughout the life of a case. As a result of this interdisciplinary approach, our appellate lawyers are able to capitalize on their intimate knowledge of a case while leveraging the broader team’s experience with appellate court procedures—a strength that enables us to ensure the highest quality representation from the critical, pre-trial motions stage to the highest levels of appellate review.
Curtis has a longstanding legacy as one of New York’s prominent firms representing international clients in appellate litigation proceedings. Since its earliest days, the firm has leveraged its international expertise to offer a specialized focus in handling complex appeals involving international and multi-jurisdictional issues.
Today, Curtis remains at the forefront of appellate litigation at the highest levels. Our appellate lawyers also have experience handling investment-treaty and international commercial arbitrations, continuing the firm’s tradition of combining their international savvy with their deep and broad experience in litigation. As a result of this specialized area of focus, our appellate lawyers have successfully litigated against and alongside some of the most formidable appellate groups.
