The attorneys at Sepulvado, Maldonado & Couret have briefed and argued appeals before the Puerto Rico Supreme Court, the United States District Court for the First Circuit, and the Puerto Rico Court of Appeals. The appeals our Firm has briefed and argued involve include cases involving a wide range of matters, such as constitutional law, administrative law, antitrust, trademarks, federal jurisdiction, intellectual property, distribution and franchising, insurance law, among others.
Our attorneys regularly apply the appellate briefing approach at the trial level. This allows our attorneys to shape arguments in a way that clients can be adequately defended at an appellate review. Our attorneys have published several articles on topics of constitutional law and international relations. They have been directors and editors for various law reviews in Puerto Rico and come from working as law clerks for Puerto Rico Supreme Court Justices and judges to the Puerto Rico Court of Appeals.
Last year, the Honorable Maite D. Oronoz Rodríguez, a past Income Partner at our firm, was appointed and confirmed Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Puerto Rico. Justice Oronoz Rodríguez’s appointment and confirmation is a testament to the quality and excellence of the Appellate practice at Sepulvado, Maldonado & Couret.
