Hugh Gottschalk has handled a myriad of cases in his 30-year litigation career, including contract disputes, franchise matters, environmental torts, professional and product liability cases, and trade secret, patent, copyright, and trademark infringement cases. He employs his decades of litigation experience, accumulated knowledge, and science education background to effectively present complex and technical information at trial.
Hugh's experience in commercial litigation is particularly extensive. He has represented clients in numerous commercial disputes involving alleged breaches of contracts, fraud and misrepresentation, securities, franchise matters, and intellectual property infringements. Hugh has served as national or regional trial counsel to several large and well-known companies in industries as diverse as information technology, energy, manufacturing, and consumer and professional services.
In 2010, Hugh co-led the WTO team that managed the response to 418 dealer arbitration requests and the litigation of 187 of the Section 747 arbitrations for Chrysler Group. WTO was one of only two law firms in the country representing Chrysler in these matters. Over a four-month period, Hugh himself tried nine of these arbitrations and won eight of them.
Chambers USA, the international guide to America's leading business lawyers, describes Hugh as, "an excellent strategist and trial lawyer," and one of the top commercial litigation lawyers in Colorado. He has been selected by his peers for inclusion in the business litigation category in Colorado Super Lawyers since its inception in 2006 and has appeared multiple years in a row on its top 50 list.
