About me

Eric P. Haas brings a decade of business litigation experience to Gardner Haas PLLC. Formerly with the national law firm Bickel & Brewer, Eric has represented clients in state and federal courts around the country, and in domestic and international arbitration proceedings, in commercial matters involving claims for breach of contract, misappropriation of trade secrets, unfair competition, bad faith, breach of fiduciary duty, fraud, patent infringement, environmental damages, and securities law violations. With deep experience working on high-dollar, high risk “bet the business” cases at a sophisticated, complex practice, Eric understands what it takes to achieve the best possible results for his clients.
