For more than 35 years, our attorneys have represented companies and individuals in complex, high-stakes litigation matters in state and federal courts. We approach each case as though it is heading to trial and this mindset drives our actions from the beginning of the case. Our consistent record of success in high-stakes cases before state and federal trial and appellate courts is regularly recognized by legal and business publications, including Chambers USA, Super Lawyers, Benchmark: Litigation and Best Lawyers in America. While many cases are resolved prior to trial, it is our experience that better settlements are obtained because our opposition knows we are ready, willing, and able to take the case to the mat.
In addition, Bailey Kennedy has extensive experience in assisting and advising Nevada attorneys and out-of-state attorneys in preparing for and litigating a trial. Specifically, Bailey Kennedy is routinely retained to assist other attorneys with motions in limine, trial briefs, jury instructions, verdict forms, post-trial motions for judgment as a matter of law, motions for new trial, and motions for attorney’s fees and costs. We also assist with evidentiary objections during trial and can advise on proper preservation of issues for appeal, as well as ways to minimize appealable issues after the trial.
Our team of experienced attorneys represents companies and individuals in a wide range of civil matters including contract and commercial disputes, false claim/qui tam actions, corporate and partnership disputes, antitrust and unfair competition matters, corporate and partnership disputes, fraud, breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duties, theft of confidential information and trade secrets, restrictive covenants, among others.
We represent leaders in diverse industry sectors, including many large, multinational companies, as well as smaller businesses in connection with their complex commercial litigation matters.
Bailey Kennedy’s appellate practice provides clients with experienced appellate advocacy and support in all stages of litigation. Appellate work requires an in-depth understanding of substantive and procedural issues, and appellate oral advocacy.
Most importantly, it requires analytical and writing skills aimed at persuading appellate judges. Our appellate lawyers have a track record of success in both the Nevada Supreme Court and in federal appellate courts, with both appeals and petitions for extraordinary writs. We also regularly assist trial counsel during a trial in order to minimize appealable issues while also preserving an appropriate trial record for any necessary appeal.
