James A. Morsch
Jim Morsch assists corporate clients with a wide variety of disputes involving insurance, antitrust and commercial law, as well as class action litigation. A trial lawyer with more than 25 years of experience, Jim litigates cases in state, federal and appellate courts and routinely has matters in arbitration. In his insurance work, Jim represents insurers and insurance brokers in litigation involving bad faith, consumer protection claims, errors and omissions, breach of contract and fraud, among many other issues. On the commercial side, he represents clients ranging from Fortune 500 companies to small businesses in an array of disputes, ranging from matters involving trade secrets, restrictive covenants and breach of contract to consumer fraud, tortious interference, conspiracy and RICO. His anti-trust work includes representations of manufacturers, distributors, service businesses, health care providers, and many others. When companies face the threat of class action claims, Jim provides assessments and offers counsel for resolutions to avoid litigation. If litigation ensues, he represents them in claims to defeat class action certification or to opt-out of class actions that do not serve corporations' best interests.
Much like his class action work, Jim's approach to resolving matters is to litigate when the client believes it is appropriate. But he also offers alternatives that takes into account the client's desire for efficient and cost-effective resolution, including through mediation and arbitration.
Jim is an adjunct professor at Loyola University Chicago School of Law where he teaches Class Actions.
