A broad legal practice dedicated to excellence
While Smyth & Mason does provide transactional services, our emphasis is on litigation. We bring and defend cases in state and federal courts on behalf of both businesses and individuals. Our areas of practice include:
Commercial litigation and dispute resolution — Our attorneys have resolved commercial litigation in several state and federal courts in various areas of law, such as patent and trademark infringement, shareholder derivative and oppression claims, governmental construction contract and lease disputes, mortgage securitization fraud, predatory lending, tunnel boring disputes, LLC and partnership disputes, and insurance coverage and bad faith. We have represented clients in Washington, Alaska, California, Hawaii, Florida, Georgia, Texas, Oregon, Japan, the Peoples’ Republic of China, the United Kingdom and France.
Catastrophic personal injury. We have successfully represented seriously injured persons or the estate of deceased persons in automobile, fire, product liability, medical malpractice and many other personal injury contexts.
Commercial transactions and real estate — Our firm manages the full array of tasks related to contracts for businesses, and sales or refinances of apartment complexes and office buildings. Contracts include purchase and sale agreements, master service agreements (MSAs), SOWs, commercial contracts, proprietary information and confidentiality agreements, non-competition agreements, commission agreements, severance agreements, banking and loan agreements, and security agreements. Our varied clientele also has included significant players in the wine and vineyard industries in Washington and California.
Employment law — We represent workers and employers in claims regarding age, gender, national origin and disability discrimination, sexual harassment, retaliatory discharge and whistleblowing. We handle wage and hour disputes, such as overtime misclassification, unpaid wages, independent contractor misclassification, payroll disputes and class actions. We help businesses manage compliance, including DOL and DLI audits, overtime classifications, payroll, terminations, sexual and other harassment prevention, employment handbooks, internal investigations, discrimination, whistleblowing, ADA, FMLA, FLSA, and Title 7. We draft, negotiate and revise non-competition agreements, proprietary information and trade secret agreements, and we litigate cases claiming a breach of such agreements.
