Dykema Gossett PLLC
1301 K Street NW Ste1100 W
Washington, DC 20005
I focus on commercial litigation and legal malpractice defense. Also, I handle compliance investigations, particularly cases involving anti-bribery law and securities law violations.
I handle a broad range of commercial litigation cases, often including allegations of fraud. For example, I represented a client in a breach of contract and fraud case to recover money fraudulently diverted through the use of corporate alter egos. In another case, I arbitrated a claim against a company that had misappropriated his client’s construction funds. I have sued to enforce letters of credit and payment schedules in state and federal courts around the country. I have also represented investors in fraud cases based upon the defendants’ misrepresentations of their net worth and liquidity.
Outside the commercial litigation context, I represent attorneys and law firms accused of legal malpractice. These cases frequently involve an attorney’s alleged conflict of interest, an alleged breach of the attorney’s duty of loyalty, or an alleged misappropriation of funds.
I also counsel firms on data privacy and cybersecurity matters. Such counseling involves "an ounce of prevention," whereby I advise companies on data privacy best practices, including establishing data privacy procedures and ensuring appropriate transparency in said procedures. I also assist companies that have suffered a breach or a cyber attack mitigate the ensuing damages and repair their systems.
Additionally, I represent directors in various shareholder derivative suits. I often defend directors against derivative suits alleging breach of fiduciary duty based upon the directors’ response to a buyout offer. I have written on derivative suits based upon a company’s admitted or suspected violations of the FCPA.
