John W. Reis

John Reis litigates product liability, construction, commercial, and maritime cases throughout the Southeastern United States. He joined the Charlotte office in 1998. He has extensive trial and appellate experience, but his primary focus is client service even if that means no litigation at all.

John has taken leading roles in mass tort cases, including serving as co-lead counsel in a multidistrict litigation proceeding against a product manufacturer.

John has published and conducted seminars on several of the complex issues that arise in his fields of practice, including the economic loss doctrine, the malfunction theory, the proper measure of damages, trial techniques, and other issues.

John earned his undergraduate degree in 1988 from Duke University and his law degree, cum laude, in 1992 from the University of Miami School of Law, where he was executive editor of the InterAmerican Law Review, a Moot Court board member, winner of the Advanced Moot Court competition and an inductee into the Order of the Barristers.
