León Cosgrove

Appellate

León Cosgrove’s appellate practice is national in scope, serving clients the firm has represented at trial, as well as those who hire us exclusively to handle their appeal. The firm’s strength in this area is bolstered by the fact that most of our partners and associates are former judicial law clerks. Our lawyers have clerked at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit and the U.S. District Courts for the District of Columbia and the Middle and Southern Districts of Florida, as well as for the Florida Fourth District Court of Appeal.

We handle appeals across all areas of the firm’s litigation practice, and have defended and won major money judgments for clients ranging from seven to nine-figure awards. Our attorneys have obtained important rulings in disputes involving a telecommunications carrier that impacted nationwide coverage; a foreign government in a large Ponzi scheme case; construction contractors accused of violating Texas prevailing wage law (in a case of first impression arising from the construction of Dallas-Ft. Worth International Airport); a land use dispute that defined local government policy; an agricultural government contract that re-established crop insurance for thousands of growers across the United States; the New York Attorney General in a consumer fraud case; and financial institutions and financial services companies on issues across the state of Florida; as well as administrative procedure cases.
