Mr. Harris began his legal career in a real estate boutique firm which handled complex real estate matters, including multi-party litigation involving challenging and complicated legal issues. He has represented a number of his clients for his entire legal career. Among those is at least one company that began as a small organization, but has grown during the tenure of Mr. Harris’s representation into a multi-national conglomerate. Representation of this (and other) entities has involved not only significant legal issues, but also international laws and treaties.
In addition to business representation, Mr. Harris has focused a majority of his time on litigation matters. This has included a class action lawsuit in which the firm represented approximately 3,000 claimants, mesothelioma death cases, products liability, medical malpractice, trucking accidents, and several significant premises liability cases, at least one of which involved death from negligent security, and another a rape of a minor due to lax management of an apartment complex.
For the last several years, a great deal of Mr. Harris’s focus has been on representing clients defrauded in investment schemes that supposedly involved tax-deductibility of contributions made to employer welfare benefit plans—the people not only lost money from their contributions, but also were audited and suffered tremendous losses due to IRS penalties.
