Bar and Court Admissions
Harry Dorcy’s legal practice focuses on complex commercial litigation at both the trial and appellate levels. Prior to joining WTO in 2016, he was a contract attorney working for multiple law firms and corporations conducting eDiscovery reviews on various complex matters including class-action products liability, employment, breach of contract, and patent infringement.
- Won Montana Supreme Court victory for a health system in a putative consumer class action that challenged its policy of issuing refunds in the form of pre-paid debit cards. The victory affirmed WTO's prior summary judgment win and defeated the plaintiff's new claims on appeal.
- Beltran v. Noonan et al. (D. Colo. 2019) - Successfully represented multiple defendants in a $2.1 billion federal antitrust and labor class action challenging the au pair exchange program administered by the Department of State. After four years of litigation, and just two months before trial, WTO helped to negotiate settlement for the defense group, resulting in defendants paying only 3% of the demand.
- Successfully represented Aimco, one of the largest apartment owners in the U.S., in nationwide litigation alleging intentional torts against Airbnb. After jury selection in the first trial, Airbnb settled all litigation on terms allowing Aimco to control short-term rental activity consistent with its contract and property rights. The closely watched litigation is changing how the short-term rental industry operates.
