Evan is a trial and appellate lawyer representing clients in complex business and commercial disputes in a variety of industries. He is a problem solver and advocate by nature who strives to efficiently achieve clients’ goals—whether through pre-suit negotiation or in the courts.
His subject matter experience includes breaches of contract and related business tort litigation concerning manufacturing and supply chain; restrictive covenant (e.g., non-compete and non-solicitation) enforcement and consulting; commercial real estate transactions; insurance coverage and indemnification claims; financial services; local government revenue sharing and economic development; higher education and accreditation; and business ownership and corporate governance disputes. Evan has also represented local and national law firms in professional liability matters.
Evan has significant practical experience from case intake to conclusion. That experience includes drafting routine and dispositive motions, as well as arguing them in court. He is hands-on through all phases of discovery, including drafting and responding to written requests in addition to taking and defending depositions. He has also examined witnesses at trial and evidentiary hearings.
Beyond his trial experience, Evan has also briefed multiple successful appeals—two of which were favorably declined for review upon petitions to transfer to the Indiana Supreme Court.
