Experience


Mr. Moore’s practice has focused on commercial litigation and employment-related matters since his admission to the Colorado bar in 1997. His litigation experience is notable for its breadth; examples include successful representation of clients in disputes arising out of commercial real estate transactions, catastrophic torts (including cases with seven- and eight-figure economic losses), interference with contract, and partnership disputes.


Mr. Moore’s employment practice includes representing individuals and employers ranging from start-up firms concerned with issues of basic compliance to Fortune 500 companies facing significant litigation threats. As general outside employment counsel he has frequently drafted handbooks and policies, executive contracts, and a variety of other employment-related agreements, advised on all manner of personnel decisions, and generally assisted clients with minimizing the risk of costly litigation and administrative proceedings. Unusual among employment attorneys, Mr. Moore regularly represents employees as well as employers. This has most often included plaintiffs with breach of contract, sexual harassment, and retaliation claims, as well as defending employees against claims for violation of covenants not to compete. In addition, he has frequently advised both employees and employers regarding the enforcement and drafting of executive employment agreements and restrictive covenants, and has worked frequently with physicians in negotiating employment, shareholder, and separation agreements.
