Leah Graham is adept at handling a variety of high-stakes business disputes at trial and in arbitration. Her hallmark is meticulous preparation and attention to detail. She takes seriously the trust her clients place in her and recognizes the importance of understanding her clients’ business, industry, and history. In each instance, her focus is always on meeting her clients’ goals and expectations while working to resolve their problems efficiently so they can get back to their work and lives. The scope of Leah’s experience includes construction, sports, employment, oil & gas, real estate, environmental, product liability, intellectual property, partnership, trustee and fiduciary matters, and personal injury claims. As one example, Leah navigated a challenging bet-the-company breach of contract, partnership, and construction dispute in which she was instrumental in developing the litigation strategy. She managed complex discovery, evaluated and retained expert witnesses, handled two dozen depositions, and sat second chair during the five-week trial. Ultimately, her team obtained more than 90 percent of the relief sought for her client.
