Dave Wilson is a proven trial lawyer that defends Fortune 500 companies, regional businesses, and individuals in high-stakes litigation. For over 25 years, he has represented leading corporations in the transportation, manufacturing, and financial sectors in catastrophic accidents, product liability, premises liability, and commercial litigation.
Dave helps clients navigate complex litigation and mitigate risks while protecting their bottom line. He has a unique understanding of the challenges facing large corporations and financial institutions from his prior work at an international investment bank and consumer products giant. Dave collaborates closely with general counsel, in-house legal departments, and claims professionals to understand their objectives and constraints, tailoring a litigation strategy that aligns with the business goals.
While Dave has built a reputation for his trial success against top-tier plaintiff attorneys, he aims to keep his clients out of the courtroom. He leverages his experience to secure dismissals early in the litigation, negotiate favorable settlements, and minimize negative media coverage. He knows the importance of balancing trial readiness to discourage future lawsuits with pursuing cost-effective and efficient resolutions.
