Seth Horvath focuses his practice on trial and appellate litigation in state and federal courts nationwide. He represents a wide variety of clients in complex commercial disputes across multiple industries.
My practice includes three main areas:
My commercial-litigation experience is wide-ranging. From single-witness administrative hearings to complex, multi-party trials to summary proceedings on issues of law, I represent clients in the real-estate, legal, financial-services, manufacturing, and medical industries, among others. Each commercial case is unique, and I enjoy the challenge of helping clients identify creative and effective legal solutions tailored to meet their business goals.
Appellate advocacy starts in the trial court. I counsel clients on preserving trial issues for appeal and crafting interlocutory appeals that resolve key legal issues before final judgment. After judgment, I help clients identify their strongest appellate issues and create persuasive arguments to present to reviewing courts.
My employment practice includes representing employers in wage-and-hour lawsuits, discrimination proceedings before the Illinois Department of Human Rights and Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, restrictive-covenant disputes, and trade-secret cases.
Discovery analytics continue to evolve at a rapid pace. More so than ever before, success in litigation will be dictated by leveraging data early in a case through conceptual analytics and technology-assisted review.
Before entering private practice, I was a law clerk for Justice Rita B. Garman of the Illinois Supreme Court.
