Todd represents both individuals and corporate clients in a broad range of litigation matters throughout the state of Alabama and the southeastern United States, including complex commercial disputes, disputes between shareholders in a closely-held business, business torts, corporate governance, trusts and estates, and professional negligence.  He represents both plaintiffs and defendants which enables him to strategically understand both sides of the case and allows him to anticipate the strengths and weakness of each party.  He has litigated a variety of cases in both federal and state courts as well as matters compelled to arbitration.  He has experience in all stages of litigation, including the drafting and filing of the complaint, managing discovery, taking and defending depositions, drafting and arguing dispositive motions, negotiating settlements, preparing for trial, participating in trying cases to a verdict, post-trial motion practice, and drafting and filing appellate briefs.
