HIGH STAKES LITIGATION

 

Our attorneys have spent their entire professional careers handling “bet-the-company” cases in courtrooms across the country, where the continued existence of the company depends on the outcome. We thrive under that kind of pressure. At times, we’ve disposed of cases before trial by sending a carefully crafted letter, filing a motion or negotiating a settlement. But other times, we’ve had to take those cases to trial. We’ve routinely defended clients against damage claims of tens and even hundreds of millions of dollars. We routinely go against some of the largest law firms in the world. We haven’t been out-gunned yet. It doesn’t take a hundred lawyers to win your case. Having a team of high-rate associates bill your file every day doesn’t win your case. Having a team of experienced trial lawyers who personally handle your case makes all the difference in the world. Check our track record. You won’t find a better team, not at the big firms, not anywhere.  In an age where few cases go to trial, it’s nice to know you have lawyers who aren’t afraid to try tough cases. 

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

 

Intellectual property is, simply put, one of the most important legal areas for businesses and entrepreneurs. Phil Free is a registered patent attorney with more than 25 years of experience protecting innovations, enforcing rights and counseling clients on the broad spectrum of IP issues, including: 

  • Patents  

  • Trademarks 

  • Copyrights  

  • Trade Secrets 

  • Trade Dress 

  • Information Technology 

  • Domain Names 

  • Right of Publicity

  • Licensing 

When intellectual property litigation is required, our experience is tough to beat.

COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE

 

Geren Steiner spent four years in this industry and he is used by companies in Oklahoma, Texas and Colorado to draft and negotiate their leases and other real estate transactions. 

CONSTRUCTION LAW

Geren Steiner worked for four years in the real estate industry. Tony Rupert worked on construction jobs throughout high school and college.  They can read a set of plans and they understand how a Change Order works.  They have tried construction dispute cases to verdict in Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arkansas and the District of Columbia.  Their largest construction case involved a $600 million dispute over the building of four natural gas processing plants in Texas, and it was tried in Houston for over 6 months. 

CONTINGENCY LITIGATION

 

We’ve spent decades at large law firms mostly defending corporations. And we still do that, in commercial litigation.  But one of the reasons we left to form our own practice is that in personal injury cases we are rededicating our practice to helping the little guy.  We will no longer represent corporations in personal injury litigation but have taken on a number of cases on the Plaintiff side, and we will continue to do so.  We have tried and won Plaintiff personal injury cases in the past, but now this is our dedication.
