Appellate Practice

Protecting Your Interests on Appeal

Whether you win or lose before the trial court, the appellate stage of litigation presents a whole new ballgame. Accordingly, you need experienced and knowledgeable appellate counsel to ensure your rights and interests are fully and effectively represented.

Winthrop & Weinstine, P.A., has an extensive state and federal appellate practice in Minnesota,and throughout the country. We have represented clients in a variety of matters involving commercial disputes, product liability claims, intellectual property rights, taxation and insurance coverage, just to name a few.

Several of Winthrop & Weinstine’s attorneys have clerked in the state and federal appellate courts prior to entering private practice, including the Minnesota Supreme Court and the United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit, which hears appeals from Minnesota’s federal district court. These attorneys can provide unique insight as to how the appellate process works and effective methods for presenting the issues and arguments on appeal.

We have been involved in all aspects of appellate proceedings, including interlocutory appeals, writs of mandamus and prohibition, appeals from final orders and judgments, petitions for further review, and petitions for writs of certiorari.

Winthrop & Weinstine provides valuable expertise and experience in protecting your interests in the appellate courts. Whether you have been with us from the start of the lawsuit or you engage us for the appeal, we can work effectively and efficiently with trial counsel to preserve victory or take a fresh look at the case to formulate and present the most compelling arguments following an adverse result.

In addition to representing the rights of parties, Winthrop & Weinstine has also regularly prepared and submitted amicus curiae briefs on behalf of trade associations and other groups who have a strong interest in a pending appeal. Such entities have included the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce, Insurance Federation of Minnesota, American Insurance Association, Builders Association Minnesota, Builders Association of the Twin Cities, Mortgage Bankers Association of Minnesota, Minnesota Land Title Association, and Minnesota Real Estate Services Association.
