Michael S. O'Reilly
Michael O'Reilly represents companies and individuals in litigation and arbitration of complex business and commercial disputes. Drawing on 20 years of experience, Michael handles cases that involve issues ranging from unfair competition and theft of trade secrets to breach of contract and property damage. Both before and after lawsuits arise, clients including Fortune 500 companies, single shareholder corporations and individuals look to him for litigation avoidance advice and, when the situation warrants, to try cases in state and federal courts across the country. His experience extends to a broad range of industries, including telecommunications and wireless devices, transportation, technology, and software.
Michael understands that businesses want to work through disputes with minimal effect on their bottom line and disruption to their operations. To that end, he advises on the stakes in each case, so the client can weigh options including trying to dispose of the dispute through motions to negotiating a settlement before trial. Michael also has experience arbitrating matters before the American Arbitration Association (AAA) and FINRA.
