In his trial career, spanning more than 39 years, Marty Rose has tried scores of cases in state and federal courts all over the country. His experience has shown that when the opposition knows you are prepared to try the case — and will try it if a favorable settlement is not achieved — that threat works to his clients’ advantage.

Marty has tried complex cases in 14 states. He has resolved other complex litigation, short of trial, in 47 states, as well as in Europe, South America and Asia. Marty’s docket reflects his preference for the unique challenges of high-stakes litigation. A significant portion of his work involves cases where the firm has been hired as replacement counsel to turn around a troubled lawsuit. At the same time, he has been involved in numerous cases whose stakes reflected “bet the company” risks to his client.

Marty is a pilot with ratings in helicopters and light fixed-wing aircraft.
