Trials and appeals are the specialty and focus of Erik Olson’s law practice. Erik has tried numerous cases to successful final judgment or verdict, won several appeals resulting in significant decisions in Utah law, prevailed in many dozens of lawsuits in advance of trial, and obtained hundreds of favorable client settlements. Erik has been recognized by his peers as one of the leading trial lawyers in Utah, appearing annually in rankings by Mountain States Super Lawyers, Best Lawyers of America, and the Utah Business Legal Elite.
Erik has been recognized by Super Lawyers for over ten years. From 2013 through 2019, Erik has been named by his peers to Super Lawyers’ List of Top 100 Mountain States Super Lawyers, selected from among the approximately 20,000 attorneys in all disciplines in Utah, Nevada, Montana, Idaho, and Wyoming.
Erik handles all varieties of business litigation cases from start to finish, ranging from simple contract disputes to massive, bet-the-company lawsuits. Erik has extensive experience in business breakups; construction, land use, development, and other real estate disputes; fights between employers and former employees over noncompetes and other employment covenants (typically in TRO and preliminary injunction proceedings); patent infringement and other intellectual property disputes; family trust and estate litigation; and other contentious and complex matters.
After creating a name for himself as head of a team of nearly 40 litigators at one of Utah’s finest law firms, Erik founded Marshall Olson & Hull in 2013 to provide top-quality litigation work in an agile boutique setting, and the Firm quickly became recognized by U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers as a Tier 1 Commercial Litigation firm.
