Sanford Heisler Sharp Chairman David Sanford: "It is a great red flag when a defendant — whether it’s a law firm or not — designates certain people to represent the defendant and as a result of that designation, certain documents which are otherwise key to the litigation are suddenly found on a privilege log or informally communicated to us that they’re privileged documents and not subject to discovery. When that happens, that’s a big red flag for us, and we challenge that."

In a recent court filing, Sanford Heisler Sharp claims that because Ogletree, Deakins, Smoak & Stewart had buried an arbitration agreement in a “misleadingly-titled email” to employees, the firm should not be allowed to assume plaintiff Dawn Knepper’s lack of sign-off as assent to arbitrate disputes with the firm.
Associate Leigh Anne St. Charles: “The process for creating a binding arbitration agreement has to actually inform the other party to the contract that they are entering the contract. This is just a fundamental, basic tenant to contract law.”
