Appellate Litigation

The firm maintains an active appellate practice, briefing and arguing key legal issues that affect the way the firm's clients do business. The firm's appellate practice is characterized by boldness and creativity that has positively influenced the development of Texas law for the firm's clients. The firm closely analyzes rulings of the Texas Supreme Court and Texas' intermediate courts of appeal and their interaction with biennial legislation affecting Texas business, spotting trends that inform arguments to present the client's case in the best light to the appellate courts, and to develop precedent and shape the law to serve clients' interests long after the case is closed. With a history of appellate success spanning 20 years, Tim Poteet oversees the firm's appellate practice area.
