Commercial Litigation

"Among the most responsive and client-oriented of any outside counsel."

—Client Comment to Chambers USA

In 2022, Chambers USA ranked Wheeler Trigg O'Donnell in Band 1 in Colorado for general commercial litigation. WTO lawyers compose 42% of the top-most rankings, with five lawyers ranked among the Top 12. These distinctions set WTO apart, and the cases below show why clients trust us to handle their complex commercial disputes. 

WTO helps companies, entrepreneurs, developers, investors, bankers and other financial professionals, and directors and officers resolve legal disputes through litigation and other dispute resolution methods. 

We have represented clients from a variety of industries in contract, fraud, warranty, securities, trade secrets, antitrust, insurance, and liability matters.

Our lawyers have comprehensive experience in federal and state courts, multidistrict litigation, class actions, bankruptcy courts, administrative proceedings, and civil arbitration.
