We use substantive legal principles and deep analysis to form a robust case that leads to a better outcome for your business, where there’s enough credibility in your case to move forward.

What is Business Appellate?

Business appellate, more commonly known as the court of appeals, is responsible for hearing and reviewing appeals from business cases that have already been to trial or court.

It’s important to know that when our business appellate attorneys request an appeal from the courts, the appellate court does not retry cases or hear new evidence. Witnesses do not testify again, nor is there a jury present.

Appellate courts strictly review the procedures and decisions in the trial court to ensure proceedings were fair and proper law was applied correctly.

There are three possible outcomes of a business appeal trial, according to These include:

  • Affirming the decisions of the trial court, in which case the original verdict at trial stands
  • Reverse the decision to the trial court, in which a new trial may be ordered
  • Remand the case to the trial court

Our business appellate lawyers can help you navigate the appellate court system and come up with a strategic defense should we find your civil case meets appellate court requirements for retrial.

Especially important in instances of more complex cases, our business appellate lawyers will be subjective, supportive, objective, and analytical in reviewing all the facts and findings of your case available to us and in the context of rules and procedures of the Indiana appellate court.

We will hone in on all of the key issues and facts to build our story on your behalf and represent you in the court of appeals.

    What Does a Business Appellate Lawyer Do?

    Sometimes court or jury verdicts can be challenged by businesses when there appears to be an error in the process, the law, or various other reasons that affected the outcome of a trial.

    Clients, typically the party dissatisfied with the outcome of the trial, hire us to find grounds for making an appeal.

    Reasons for an appeal vary, though claims we might prove could be that the trial was unconducted fairly or the trial judge applied the wrong law or applied the law incorrectly, based on the facts and findings presented at the time.

    Our appellate lawyers focus on the facts, viable claims, and defenses—in an attempt to show the judge clear evidence of a mistake or flaw. Legal representation from both parties includes a brief that outlines these details and lays out the case for the judge before court proceedings can begin.

    Should your trial require an appeal, and your reasoning is valid, our appellate lawyers strategize a strong, logical defense and ask that the judge relook at the possible errors and consider reversing the decision—which can happen only if they can find an error present and we make our case as strong as possible.

    As we understand the ins and outs of the appellate court, there are typically quick deadlines to appeal your case, so we’ll be prepared to move swiftly to represent you.
