When they occur, John Sugg works zealously to help his clients successfully resolve them. As a member of the Business Litigation practice group, John manages a variety of matters, including contract disputes, tax litigation, real estate, construction, and business torts.

Always advocating for his clients’ interests, he fights for his clients, while understanding practical realities and the expenditures of resources. In vigorously representing his clients, John has participated in successful trials and appeals, and also negotiated favorable settlements.

As part of a comprehensive team of attorneys experienced in business, real estate, tax, estate planning and family law, John can give his clients the benefit of additional perspectives to strengthen their cases. John takes ownership of his cases seriously to secure the best outcome, and thrives on the opportunity to demonstrate total commitment to his clients.
