Eric F. Barton

Mr. Barton is a counsel in the Litigation Department of Seyfarth Shaw LLP. For more than a decade, Mr. Barton has represented, advocated for, and advised clients in all forms of dispute resolution, including serving as lead trial counsel in numerous jury trials and arbitration proceedings throughout the Southeast.

In addition, Mr. Barton also has considerable experience litigating employee defection and recruitment matters, as well as drafting enforceable restrictive covenants and advising clients on how to best protect their confidential information and valuable customer relationships.
