A practical manual on handling federal appellate matters, especially civil appeals and and cases involving review of federal administrative agencies.
“Mayer Brown has produced a guide that every appellate lawyer should read—and that every client should expect to see on his lawyer's shelf. From the soup of preserving issues at trial to the nuts of how to get Supreme Court review, it's all here.
