Commercial disputes arise in all business contexts, ranging from relatively straightforward contract disputes and business torts to complex regulatory cases and shareholder litigation. The majority of the litigation that we handle involves complex commercial disputes, whether they arise under common law, statute, or regulation. Stoel Rives’ commercial litigators represent entities and individuals across all industries and stages of corporate growth.

We litigate some of the highest-profile cases in the state and region and are particularly strong in the areas of agricultural product liability, appellate law, complex commercial contract disputes, construction defects, environmental disputes, intellectual property enforcement and licensing, probate disputes, product liability, real estate, trade secret defense and enforcement, securities litigation, white-collar criminal defense and government investigations.

In February 2017, Wendy Olson, former U.S. Attorney for the District of Idaho, joined our office, bringing tremendous experience and acumen in the areas of government investigations, white collar criminal defense, and civil litigation. Wendy has an outstanding reputation throughout the state of Idaho and nationally, having worked with U.S. Attorneys across the country.
