Commercial Litigation

"A dominant litigation boutique
celebrated for its talent in civil trials."

—Chambers USA 2018

In 2019, Chambers USA ranked Wheeler Trigg O'Donnell in Band 1 in Colorado for general commercial litigation. Only one other firm ranked as highly. Chambers further recognized eight WTO lawyers for Colorado commercial litigation—twice as many as the next closest firms in the state. These distinctions set WTO apart, and the cases below demonstrate why clients trust us to handle their complex commercial litigation.

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.
