Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr Further Strengthens its Class Action, Insurance and Antitrust Practices With Addition of James Morsch
Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr LLP today announced that James Morsch has joined the firm as a litigation partner, resident in the Chicago office.
Mr. 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 handles litigation involving bad faith, consumer protection claims, errors and omissions, breach of contract and fraud, among many other issues. On the commercial side, his experience with disputes ranges from matters involving trade secrets, restrictive covenants and breach of contract to consumer fraud, tortious inference, conspiracy and RICO. His antitrust 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.
"We are thrilled Jim is joining Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr. The depth and breadth of his experience as a litigator is impressive," said Jason M. St. John, chair of the firm’s Litigation Practice. "We look forward to partnering with him to offer the full range of our legal capabilities to clients."
Mr. Morsch earned his J.D. from Northwestern University School of Law. He also has a B.A., cum laude, from University of Notre Dame.
