At the pretrial level, Ms. Gibson authors summary judgment and other dispositive motions, which help her clients resolve their cases at the earliest possible stage. At the trial phase, Ms. Gibson effectively presents her clients' positions and defenses in complex commercial disputes involving claims such as fraud, breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, tortious interference, and negligence. Ms. Gibson concentrates on commercial and franchise-related litigation.
