Practice Areas

Appellate

RINEY & MAYFIELD attorneys have a solid record of success in appeals in both state and federal court. We handle all aspects of an appeal, from identification of appellate issues, preparation of post-trial motions, perfection of appeal, preparation of appellate briefs and motions, and oral argument.

Commercial Litigation

Our attorneys have represented businesses and individuals in a variety of commercial litigation matters, including contract disputes, intentional business torts, disputes involving alleged breaches of fiduciary duties, fraud claims, and real estate disputes.
