For financial services companies, his practice includes defending against borrower and customer-driven claims, and providing advice regarding recoupment options, including lien rights, closing errors, title insurance, mortgage insurance and correspondent/broker agreements. For commercial clients, his practice includes representing businesses in contract negotiations, general commercial and contract disputes, insurance claims, business owner disputes, real property disputes and claims against professional service providers including insurance brokers.

Hall has been named as one of The Best Lawyers in America® since 2015 in the Commercial Litigation category and has more recently been recognized for Real Estate Litigation. These distinctions recognize the substantial work he has performed for corporate and financial services clients, including the successful negotiation and litigation of hundreds of insurance claims for corporate policyholders and the successful resolution of high-value real estate claims and issues. As part of his commercial litigation practice, Hall regularly represents businesses in pursuit of affirmative recoveries, including insurance, breach of contract, and claims related to professional duties owed to these companies. He enjoys this plaintiff’s part of his practice and has been appointed to the American Bar Association’s Tort Trial & Insurance Section’s standing Plaintiff’s Practice Committee and has also served as the Plaintiff’s/Policyholder’s Vice-Chair on the Title Insurance Litigation Committee. While companies generally prefer to avoid litigation, and Hall agrees with that sentiment, he knows there comes a time in the life of most companies when the only real choice is to pursue claims. Hall has the necessary experience to help his clients critically evaluate the litigation option as the claimant.
Hall’s goal is to help his clients reach an efficient resolution by providing early and updated assessments at each major step in the litigation process, which he has found helps his clients resolve disputes and focus their resources on what they do best – typically not litigating disputes. But, to be sure, Hall has tried cases successfully and enjoys the opportunity to help navigate his clients through trial and enjoys the challenges of formulating and implementing the best trial strategy with a constant focus on message, audience and delivery. His greatest sense of professional accomplishment is when he is able to distill and explain complicated factual and legal issues in a way that can be digested and processed efficiently by judges and juries alike.
