Visiting, or interacting with, this website does not constitute an attorney-client relationship. Although we are always interested in hearing from visitors to our website, we cannot accept representation on a new matter from either existing clients or new clients until we know that we do not have a conflict of interest that would prevent us from doing so. Therefore, please do not send us any information about any new matter that may involve a potential legal representation until we have confirmed that a conflict of interest does not exist and we have expressly agreed in writing to the representation. Until there is such an agreement, we will not be deemed to have given you any advice, any information you send may not be deemed privileged and confidential, and we may be able to represent adverse parties.


Russell Stair’s practice focuses on business litigation with an emphasis in commercial, financial products, and corporate and securities litigation, as well as restructuring and bankruptcy. When a client recently became embroiled in a dispute with a vendor over the installation of defective software, Russell successfully tried the client’s claims to an arbitration panel and obtained a $102 million award in favor of the client.

Russell works with executives, boards of directors and other business leaders to advise on best practices to avoid litigation and navigate through proceedings when litigation is unavoidable. He represents clients from a range of industries, including financial services, healthcare, manufacturing, retail, and insurance.
