Edward T. Fisher

Edward T. Fisher is a Member in Griesing Law, LLC’s Commercial Litigation and Corporate Transactions and Compliance practice groups.

What do you focus on?

I focus my practice on representing companies in all types of business-related issues, from strategic planning to handling threatened or actual litigation. I also defend employers in disputes arising out of claims of discrimination, harassment and retaliation, and representing entities in breach of contract, trade secret, non-compete and other business-related matters.

What do you see on the horizon?

Employers will begin to see even more compliance and litigation issues related to today’s ever changing and expanding technology, including discovery targeted at smart phones and other mobile devices, ADA nondiscrimination requirements for websites, and increased privacy concerns as the growth of mobile devices and social media continues to explode.
