Appellate Practice

A case looks very different on appeal. To handle the unique nature of the appellate practice, Larson • King has a team of skilled appellate lawyers.  These lawyers can be involved early in the development of the case strategy to best position the case for success on appeal.  From obtaining review, briefing and arguing the appeal, we provide our experience, expertise and an important appellate court perspective.

A number of our attorneys clerked for appellate and district court judges and focus their practice on appellate work.  Notable Larson • King appellate successes include:

  • Favorable ruling affirmed by Minnesota Court of Appeals in a motor carrier vicarious liability case.
  • Favorable ruling affirmed by Minnesota Supreme Court in a case involving injury and homeowners duty of care.
  • Reversal by the Minnesota Supreme Court of an unfavorable lower court ruling in a suit involving dram shop liability limits.
  • Eighth Circuit victory for our client in a matter involving constitutional deprivation.

Our appellate lawyers provide trial support to lawyers within our firm and lawyers from other firms; this support helps ensure that crucial legal and factual issues are presented effectively to the trial court and preserved for appeal. Our appellate practice is an invaluable resource many firms lack.
