Doug Marsh is a partner in the Litigation practice group, focusing on complex commercial litigation and appeals. As a Special Assistant State’s Attorney in the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office and through federal and state judicial clerkships, Doug gained significant knowledge about trial preparation and procedure, case administration and legal research.

His experience includes presenting oral arguments in trial and appellate courts; conducting pleadings before the court; drafting, filing and arguing briefs and motions; drafting judicial memoranda, orders, opinions, complaints and responses; conducting depositions and preparing related documents; drafting written discovery requests and responses; performing discovery working closely with the client and opposing parties; and examining and cross-examining witnesses.

Doug has litigated cases across the country at both the trial and appellate levels, including in a recent client victory on a matter involving the long-distance telephone scam known as “traffic pumping” (also called “access stimulation”). In that matter, his team secured a judgment following a bench trial and recovered in excess of $1 million in damages for his client. Doug also helped draft the appellate briefs defending that judgment on appeal.

In bankruptcy court matters, Doug’s experience includes avoiding fraudulent transfers and litigating adversary proceedings. This unique intersection of the law enables Doug to provide significant value to his litigation clients, seeing the matter from all angles.
