Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP offers a depth and breadth of appellate experience, with many of our attorneys listed in The Best Lawyers in America in the field of Appellate Law.

“Maintains a strong reputation for its handling of trial and appellate cases such as IP disputes, professional liability claims and white-collar criminal defense.” – Chambers and Partners, 2016.


Our appellate team includes former law clerks to judges on the United States courts of appeals, United States district courts, and state appellate courts; the current President of the Kentucky Bar Association; a former Indiana Supreme Court Administrator; a member of the Sixth Circuit Advisory Committee on Rules; a member of the Kentucky Appellate Rules Advisory Committee; the former Chair of the Indiana Supreme Court Rules Committee; former Chairs of the Appellate Sections of the Kentucky and Indiana State Bar Associations; lawyers appointed to serve as Special Justices on the Kentucky Supreme Court; and two of only four lawyers in Indiana recognized as members of the American Academy of Appellate Lawyers.

Appellate practice is a collaborative process between the trial lawyer and the appellate lawyer, each bringing a distinct perspective in order to achieve the best possible outcome, both at trial and on appeal. Our appellate attorneys often work with trial counsel before and during trial to ensure a proper record is established, and potential errors are preserved for appellate review. And after trial our attorneys devote their distinct appellate skills to make the best possible presentation to the appellate court.
