BUSINESS & COMMERCIAL

 

Some of our biggest results have been representing individuals and businesses who have been aggrieved in their commercial affairs. Unlike many law firms, we are willing to share the risks of litigation with our clients and represent them on a contingency or mixed fee basis.

We gauge our success as a corporate defense firm by the types of clients who engage us for representation. In that regard, the greatest form of flattery is being engaged by our colleagues at other law firms, for whom we’ve handled several significant cases. We also work for some of the largest and well respected corporate clients in Utah and other jurisdictions, and have handled a wide variety of matters including patent, copyright infringement, trade secret claims, contract disputes and malpractice claims.
