Dispute Resolution

(Trial, Appeals & Alternative)

Business Law

(Contracts and Consultation)

WELCOME TO MY FIRM…STEVE LUNDWALL

 

I focus my practice in two areas: (1) resolving business disputes, and (2) negotiating business deals and providing legal business advice.

DISPUTE RESOLUTION: I have extensive experience in complex commercial litigation, of all sizes and subject areas. My experience includes patent and copyright infringement, trade secret misappropriation, employee non-competition agreements, complex construction counseling and litigation issues, antitrust, fraud and unfair competition issues, etc.

I have worked on disputes involving:


I have helped businesses owned by a single individual to fortune 100 companies. 

I have helped resolve disputes involving a few thousand dollars to several billion. 

I have argued and/or prepared presentations (oral and written) for district courts, juries, appellate courts, mediators, arbitrators and administrative agencies.

I am efficient.  I do myself or with strategic attorney alliances what large law firms throw numerous attorneys to do.  My clients appreciate this.

BUSINESS CONSULTATION AND NEGOTIATON.  My skills also include the negotiation, drafting, and closing of business agreements and transactions, including technology service agreements, asset purchase agreements, license and employment agreements, and settlement agreements.

I have also helped businesses to get established in several states and negotiated deals to get them running. 

I consult with businesses frequently on the large variety of issues that arise for a business and for which they need sound legal advice. 

Over the last 25 years I have compiled a large variety of types of issues that I have worked on.  Here are a few samples.

Magnum Oil Tools v. Wireline Solutions Inc., Map Oil Tools, etc. Obtained summary judgment of non-infringement in multi-million dollar patent dispute involving bridge plug technology. Obtained result for clients in less than one year from date suit brought against clients.  Then, I helped one of the clients negotiate, draft, and sell its business to a fortune 500 company.  This good result for client could not have been done if we had not prevailed in the patent infringement business dispute.

Texas Instruments v. Better Education, Inc. Helped negotiate a settlement for my client Better Education, Inc., the plaintiff, to end litigation of an intellectual property dispute involving software for computers used in education. My client was founded and run by a single person with lots of creativity who had a dispute against a large and established company.

Studiengesellschaft Kohle v. Shell Oil Co. Helped Shell Oil in a $30 million patent and contract dispute over plastics technology; prevailed on a summary judgment for Shell.

Parker Barber Beauty Supply v. Wella Corp. et al. Representation of Wella in a $20 million misappropriation of trade secret and breach of fiduciary duty claim, prevailed on a summary judgment for the defendant.

BodyBilt, Inc. v. Neutral Posture, Inc. Representation of Neutral Posture in a breach of contract, business disparagement, and related tort claims, prevailed on a summary judgment for the defendant and obtained one of the largest sanction awards discovered among Texas reported cases against the opposing counsel and plaintiff.

I have consulted on numerous matters for businesses on a wide variety of matters: contracts, employee disputes, compliance issues, litigation avoidance, assignment and sale agreements, etc.

Activities

Over the years, I have been involved with and led numerous pro bono initiatives to help, for example, low-income neighborhoods to obtain needed deed restrictions, low-income elderly persons negotiate with creditors, and victims of torture and abuse in foreign countries obtain asylum, etc. See, e.g., “Ensuring Justice For All.”  KHOU-Channel 11-Houston, TX (my interview for evening news broadcast on July 4, 2007 regarding legal pro bono work being done).

I have also worked extensively with hundreds of youth participating in chartered organizations of the Boy Scouts of America.

Locations of Service

I have helped clients in many States within the United States (Utah, Texas, Florida, California, Virginia, Illinois, and Massachusetts, to name a few).  I have helped clients in Mexico, England and Europe.  Modern technology allows my office to go with me virtually anywhere.

My main “brick and mortar” office is in Utah where I serve Salt Lake City, and cities and communities within the larger Utah Valley (including Utah County and Wasatch County).  I also have an office in Houston, Texas.

Education

I received a B.A. as a University Honors Designate from Brigham Young University in 1987. I then received my J.D. in 1990, magna cum laude, from Brigham Young University, J. Reuben Clark Law School.
