Doug Albritton has nearly 20 years of commercial litigation and arbitration experience, representing both plaintiffs and defendants in trial and appellate matters throughout the United States. A unique portion of his practice focuses on the prosecution and defense of trade secret and restrictive covenant cases, including employee non-competes, similar covenants with new and former equity-interest holders from the purchase and sale of companies, and related agreements arising from consulting and other business relationships. Doug routinely litigates the emergency TRO and preliminary injunction hearings that come with this work, has tried cases that could not be resolved to verdict, and often works with computer forensic consultants to investigate (and defend against) data-theft claims (including direct and cross-examination experience with such witnesses in court).
Doug also focuses his practice on complex business disputes arising out of commercial transactions and investor relationships, where he often represents plaintiffs, including LLC disputes, private-company shareholder claims, real-estate litigation, and the defense of class action, securities and derivative lawsuits. Representative clients include software, packaging, food, biotechnology, service contract, hotel, private equity and venture capital companies (and their portfolio companies), and individual entrepreneurs and investors.
Doug is an experienced trial litigator. In 2013 alone he took six cases to trial - one domestic and one international arbitration, two bench trials, a three-day preliminary injunction hearing, and a federal jury trial. All went to decision, save the jury trial which settled at jury selection.
Early in his career, Doug served as assistant legal counsel to the Illinois House Democrats and the Speaker of the House for two terms, from 1996 - 1997. His work encompassed analyzing and drafting legislation, and providing general legal advice to House members on issues of state and federal law. He continues to represent political clients in their commercial and other disputes, and non-governmental clients in disputes with governmental and political entities.
