Dwight Francis has devoted his career to complex corporate litigation and has extensive courtroom experience. He has both defended and prosecuted suits involving claims of theft of trade secrets, tortious interference with contractual and business relations, directors and officers disputes, breach of fiduciary duty claims, and many other commercial litigation disputes in federal and state courts across the country.

Employing a unique approach to litigation matters, Dwight tailors his representation directly to his clients' needs and goals. Early on, Dwight conducts a case assessment. During this assessment, he works with the client to define its goals and to prepare a case strategy so that those goals may be met whether through alternative dispute resolution, summary judgment or trial on the merits of the case.

This approach has been effectively used by Dwight in his role as national counsel for numerous entities. As national counsel, he manages outside counsel and serves as lead trial counsel. Dwight’s clients are in various industries, including insurance, oil and gas, health care, manufacturing, airlines, motor club, third-party administrators and others.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
