Reed tries civil cases before judges, juries, administrative panels and in all ADR venues focusing on commercial matters and related counseling. His active litigation and trial practice centers on plaintiff representation in cases involving financial harm in contracts and other commercial disputes, negligence, unfair trade practices, breaches of fiduciary duty and complex judgment collection matters. His employment practice has resolved wage claims, classification, discrimination and harassment, as well as cases involving non-compete agreements and trade secrets. Reed also represents clients in court on real estate and construction matters such as enforcement of purchase and sale agreements, easement and title matters, development ventures, construction performance, and construction payment claims. He is available to act as a mediator in business and real estate disputes. His diverse jury trial experience includes cases involving contracts, landslides, lost profits, real estate, construction, and pure emotional distress-related claims.

Reed’s transactional practice centers on general business structuring, advising on M&A transactions, and select real estate deals. From a litigator’s perspective, Reed brings a careful eye to transactional areas likely to cause disruption and disputes – employment agreements, partnerships, escrow, earn-outs, indemnification provisions, and reps and warranties. His commercial real estate clients benefit from Reed having litigated multiple real estate contracts and land matters from trial through the appellate courts.

For his clients not involved in litigation or needing to bring or defend a lawsuit, his objective is to resolve issues and avoid disputes altogether. Reed’s practice philosophy and goals are to help businesses manage risk, bringing greater certainty to their deals and achieve successful outcomes in high-stakes transactions.

Reed is the author of the independent 5280.Attorney law blog, where he writes on commercial litigation, trends, tactics and noteworthy events.

Reed received his Bachelor of Science degree in Biology, with honors, from the Lyman Briggs School at Michigan State University, where he received the Outstanding Senior Award. He received his law degree in 2003 from the University of Colorado School of Law, where he was awarded the Bernard J. Seeman scholarship as an incoming student. He is a member of the Colorado Bar and is admitted to practice before the Colorado state courts as well as the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado. He maintains memberships in the Colorado Bar Association, Northwest Colorado Bar Association, and Colorado Trial Lawyers Association.
