William Eggers is a retired partner of the firm who currently serves as Of Counsel. He divides his time between assisting clients in business disputes and service on civic and corporate boards.
I focus on large and small commercial disputes, and I have experience managing a broad variety of cases, including representing a large public client in a dispute with a former manager over the causes and consequences of his departure, advising a nonprofit entity in a governance dispute over the conduct of an election of directors, defending a bailment claim, seeking recovery for an individual in banking transactions and defending a software supplier. My service on boards and audit committees, as well as my 10 years of experience as general counsel to a Fortune 500 company, helps me see legal issues from my clients’ perspective and develop proactive solutions for both compliance and litigation matters.
Risk management is a watchword, especially for audit committees. Banks and other businesses are increasingly focused on anticipating and managing risks. When claims nevertheless happen, clients want seasoned experience, flexibility, cost containment, and above all, results.
