Adam Wilson provides nationwide top-tier legal work product for federal court — appeals, briefs, and motions — along with federal practice consulting and guidance for appeals and key motions.  He is based in Portland, Maine.

The nationwide service is for trial counsel and litigators — attorneys, lawyers, law firms, litigation boutiques, and/or solo and state court practitioners with a matter in federal court.

In addition to general consulting and guidance on the most difficult issues in federal practice — including difficult questions of federal civil and appellate procedure, evidence, experts, federal statutory law, and federal common law — see here — my work specializes in three federal court areas:

  • Drafting appellate briefs and complex trial-level motions;
  • Positioning the appeal / motion both factually and legally; and
  • Shaping the law through amicus curiae briefs.

My resume is here and my relevant experience is here.

I practiced federal civil litigation — primarily federal appellate, federal antitrust law, and federal complex litigation — for a decade at top firms in Washington, D.C. and San Francisco (e.g., Gibson Dunn).  This included a two-year clerkship on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.  For more, see here.

In addition to high-level analytical training and extensive federal practice writing experience, Adam Wilson also brings intellectual creativity to the toughest federal practice issues; by night he is a successful conceptual artist whose works are in U.S. and international private and corporate collections, including 20th Century Fox in Los Angeles and the four-star Talbott Hotel in Chicago, a Joie de Vivre hotel.
