James A. Morsch
Primary Office

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 30 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, errors and omissions, breach of contract and fraud, among many other issues in individual and class actions.

Jim also has a robust class action practice. 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. Jim regularly handles class actions on behalf of clients in the higher education and insurance industries, and colleges and universities. 


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 antitrust work includes representation of manufacturers, distributors, service businesses, health care providers, and many others.
