GMSR Partners Timothy Coates and Alana Rotter presenting at the International Municipal Lawyers Association’s Annual Conference

GMSR is proud to sponsor and speak at the International Municipal Lawyers Association’s (IMLA) 83rd Annual Conference in Houston, Texas from October 17-21, 2018.  IMLA serves the needs of attorneys representing governmental entities across a broad spectrum of practices. This year, GMSR managing partner Timothy Coates, who serves as co-chair of IMLA’s Litigation, Insurance & Risk Management section, will focus on Section 1983 litigation and present on emerging issues for litigators.  Meanwhile, at a different session, GMSR partner Alana Rotter will offer pointers on what to do—and not do—at trial to position a case for appellate success, in the session, “The Appeal Killers –Avoiding The Traps That Can Doom Your Appeal Before It Begins.”

With a record that distinguishes it from the competition and as one of the leading and top-ranked appellate law firms in California, GMSR represents public entities across the country in appellate proceedings in state and federal court.
