Greenberg Traurig LLP’s litigators are ‘very creative thinkers when it comes to case strategy’ and are split across the country; each team member combines substantive law expertise with a core focus on appellate work in the federal court of appeal in their regions. The group’s combined expertise includes areas such as regulatory, IP, environmental, torts, product liability, administrative, and election law, to name a few. The department’s leadership is particularly distinguished; it is spearheaded by former New York State Court of Appeals Judge Carmen Beauchamp Ciparick (New York), former Texas Supreme Court Justice Dale Wainwright (Austin), and the highly experienced Elliot Scherker (Miami).
