Practice Areas


~ Real Estate

We have extensive experience in all areas of real estate law and litigation. Whether you are a small property owner or a large real estate developer, our attorneys can assist you with your specific real estate needs. We have years of experience in real estate development, including zoning, subdividing, infrastructure, construction, development agreements, eminent domain “takings,” municipal and county law and interactions, and all other such related land use and entitlement matters. Our lawyers are also skilled in drafting and interpreting real estate contracts, working through boundary disputes, and resolving construction law disputes, including mechanic’s liens.


~ Employment

We represent private and public sector employers and executive-level and highly compensated employees in most areas of employment law. Our first goal is to keep our clients out of court by giving them excellent advice on their human resource, personnel, labor, and employment concerns. We review and audit human resource policies and procedures, employee manuals, employment forms, drug policies, and employment practices for compliance with federal, state, local laws and regulations. Additionally, we frequently review, draft, and negotiate severance agreements, noncompetition agreements, and confidentiality agreements.

If our clients do end up in court, we have extensive experience in administrative proceedings—such as Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and Utah Antidiscrimination and Labor Division (UALD) proceedings, Department of Labor proceedings, and Department of Workforce Services proceedings—state and federal trials, and arbitration proceedings. We have successfully prosecuted and defended our clients in all forums on discrimination claims, Fair Labor Standard Act (FLSA) claims, wage claims, unemployment claims, and wrongful termination claims.

~ Business

We provide a wide array of business law services. Whether you are incorporating a new company and just getting started, or in the process of unwinding and settling up an existing business organization, we have experienced attorneys to assist you. Our lawyers are skilled in business organization start-up, management and operating agreements, partnership disputes, buyouts, and all such types of business contracts, transactions, and litigation.


~ Litigation/Appeals

We pride ourselves in our zealous advocacy on behalf of our clients in federal and state courtrooms, administrative hearing rooms, and arbitrations. We have years of experience in these settings and are able to provide skilled litigation services while giving our clients frank, solid advice about their options.

Our skills do not go unnoticed by our peers. Our lawyers have been consistently recognized as top civil and employment and labor litigators in Utah Business Magazine, Mountain States Super Lawyers Magazine, and in Best Lawyers in America.


~ Other Areas

We provide a broad range of legal services in many areas of law. In addition to handling matters in real estate, employment, business, and litigation/appeals, our lawyers also have many years of experience and provide services in connection with personal injury, water law, and probate matters, as well as wills, trusts and estates.
