Her genuine caring about her clients’ businesses, as well as her competitive nature, ensure clients get her best efforts – always. In addition to her substantial trial, arbitration and appellate experience, Ms. Stagg enjoys counseling corporate legal departments and business owners in the most effective ways to avoid potential litigation.

He has taken Lanham Act cases all the way through trial, and has considerable experience with expert discovery, having worked with and/or against many, if not all, the most well-known marketing experts in the country on numerous occasions.
