Appellate experience

Intellectual property litigation—patent, trademark, and copyright-related issues of competition—has been our primary area of practice since the early 1990s.  Much of Calliope Legal’s appellate representation involves intellectual property. Elizabeth Rader’s experience as a Federal Circuit law clerk gives us valuable insights into what Federal Circuit judges like and dislike in appellate briefs and arguments.

We pride ourselves on the ability to explain sophisticated technology that might otherwise be challenging to those unfamiliar with specific technologies. Our name is Greek but our explanations of technology won't be Greek to a judge.

Elizabeth has also represented parties in cases that presented diverse other legal issues, including civil liberties. The necessary skills—legal writing, meticulous attention to detail, and thorough preparation for oral argument—transfer across multiple areas of the law.
