OVERVIEW

Commercial litigator and trial advocate Joel Meyer delivers business-minded dispute resolution strategies that support his clients’ financial objectives both in and out of court. Joel is an experienced negotiator who understands claims’ underlying commercial considerations and the impact a dispute may have on his client’s bottom line and market position.

In his second decade of practice, Joel has resolved complex disputes for clients that include entrepreneurs, fast-growth and middle market companies, multinational and international companies, and mature corporations. He helps clients bring and defend disputes before state and federal courts and administrative agencies across the country.

A skilled trial attorney, Joel has taken on difficult disputes and prevailed before judges, juries and arbitrators alike. His experience includes litigating and trying complex civil disputes involving breach of contract, business torts, trade secrets, product liability, toxic torts, consumer class actions, construction and healthcare law.

Notably, Joel is committed to resolving litigation in the context of each client’s specific financial goals and operational concerns. Valued for his good judgement, Joel knows, from practical experience, that protracted litigation, trial and appeals are not always the optimal route to conserving his clients’ resources and reputation. As a result, when it is in his clients’ interest to settle, Joel is dedicated to realizing the result as quickly as possible.
