Julie Negovan

Julie Negovan is Of Counsel in Griesing Law, LLC’s Commercial Litigation practice group.

What do you focus on?

I focus my practice on construction, energy, health care, class actions, mass torts and complex commercial litigation. In addition, I have extensive e-discovery experience, including project management, litigation holds, forensics and production.

What do you see on the horizon?

Currently, there is a federalism battle going on between the Supreme Court of the United States and various state courts, particularly California, concerning the preemption of the Federal Arbitration Act over state contract law governing arbitration clauses in private agreements. This battle will affect millions of business and consumers when it comes time to resolve disputes under the contracts where arbitration has been elected. We can help minimize the chaos by reviewing your contracts’ dispute resolution provisions for conformity to both the FAA and governing state law.
