His practice has encompassed contract, securities, trade regulation, partnership, shareholder oppression, dissenter’s rights, director and officer liability litigation, insurance coverage, and all manner of personal injury/toxic tort litigation. Ultimately prevailing after two en banc opinions, he was the principal defense counsel in the securities case that first recognized the “fraud-on-the-market” theory of Rule 10b-5 liability. He was trial and appellate counsel in groundbreaking cases resulting in federal preemption decisions favorable to the rail industry. He has been responsible for medical malpractice defense and other litigation and compliance at major Birmingham hospitals.

He represented two corporations that obtained judgments in June 2014 in excess of $100 million on RICO claims stemming from commercial fraud.
