The Appellate Group at Gallagher Sharp provides exceptional experience and depth of knowledge to our clients, whether it is drafting appellate briefing or advising on strategy pre-appeal at the trial court level.

The group includes former appellate law clerks who are included in Best Lawyers and Super Lawyers, and are AV Rated. With experience in the intermediate Courts of Appeals, the Supreme Court of Ohio, and other federal circuits, we assist clients with strategic posturing of issues for appeal at the trial court level, presenting and framing issues at the appellate level, and obtaining discretionary review by the Supreme Court of Ohio, where appropriate. Our appellate attorneys work as a team with trial counsel—whether within or outside Gallagher Sharp. We partner with our clients to develop strategies to present, preserve, and most effectively argue the issues which are most important to them on appeal. We are proud have assisted clients of all sizes, from individuals and sole proprietorships to Fortune 500 companies, with obtaining decisions both on issues of particular import to them and as precedent to be utilized generally in other matters. Our Appellate Practice Group prides itself on bringing “big law” capabilities with small firm sensibilities to meet all of our clients’ goals and needs.
