TRZ: where substance, quality and value intersect.

We are experienced litigators who love what we do and share a commitment to provide world-class advocacy, counseling and responsiveness to our clients. We have a national practice in insurance coverage litigation, litigation/discovery management, trade secret protection and litigation involving the ramifications of complicated historical transactions. Our business and commercial litigators handle a wide range of issues. We have a track record of success on dispositive motions, at trial and in negotiations. TRZ has significant experience in corporate investigations, most recently, we reviewed and analyzed issues related to the tax treatment of $1.1 billion in complex stock transactions. Publicly held companies, private for profit and non-profit entities, governmental entities and individuals all rely on TRZ to resolve their problems in an efficient and appropriate manner.   

While we handle significant matters for major companies throughout the United States, we are based in three smaller cities from which we can work at significantly lower fees than firms in New York, Chicago, Houston and other major markets. Our clients view us as a quality, lower cost alternative to firms in these cities. 

We are also a certified woman-owned firm, meaning that a majority of our shareholders are women. Our clients value our diversity and the broadened perspective it brings to the table.

Finally, we are agile. Our size, experience and commitment to technology allow us to move quickly, confidently and with great flexibility on a wide range of issues, beginning with innovative fee arrangements.

Supreme Court Affirms Punitive Damages Only Available for Torts

In a recent case, Lucarell v. Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company, 2018-Ohio-15, the Ohio Supreme Court affirmed that punitive damages are only available as an award for tort claims under Ohio law.
