Messner Reeves’ Litigation Practice Group represents clients in a wide range of cases, with particular emphasis on business-related litigation. 

Our litigators practice in both state and federal courts. Our trial lawyers are experienced in jury and bench trials, arbitrations, appeals and administrative proceedings, are licensed in a number of jurisdictions and manage cases in numerous other states.  We make full use of state-of-the-art litigation and courtroom technology to clearly and effectively advocate for our clients.  Although we approach every case as though it will go all the way through trial, we also understand that there are a variety of methods and strategies by which disputes may be resolved. To that end, early in each engagement, we develop the appropriate strategy to position a case consistent with the client's objectives and to make use of alternative dispute resolution procedures when appropriate.

Our litigators also have considerable experience in successfully collaborating with corporate representatives and members of the firm’s other practice groups, leading to more efficient, cost-effective representation. Our diverse clients range from individuals to local, regional and national firms, publicly held and privately held businesses, banks, manufacturers, accounting firms, insurance companies, construction companies and energy firms.

Litigation News

Partners in our Las Vegas office, Michael Edwards and Ryan Loosvelt, recently obtained summary judgment in their national retailer client’s favor on all claims.  The premises liability case alleged permanent spine, wrist, and leg injuries with a life care plan asserting over $1 million in damages.  They also successfully obtained an attorney’s fee and cost award in their client’s favor, which they used as leverage to obtain dismissal of the plaintiff’s appeal and a full and final resolution of the case.
