Jeffrey J. Asperger

Of Counsel

Commercial Litigation

Jeff’s practice includes the negotiation and resolution of commercial disputes, complex and multiparty litigation involving negligence, product liability, contract, commercial liability, design and professional liability, contamination and pollution, food recalls, and transportation and maritime disasters.

Jeff’s broad negotiation and courtroom experience includes representing clients in various state and federal courts nationwide, having been admitted pro hac vice in over 40 jurisdictions. He has been involved in a number of high-profile cases resulting in over $250 million in verdicts and settlements for his clients, and also generated a number of recognized and regularly cited appellate decisions.

Prior to joining MPS, Jeff was a partner in a national law firm and then a principal in a firm he founded. He is active in supporting many charities and the arts, and recognizes the value of teamwork as a member of teams that have won some of the world’s most notable yachting events.

“Going to court isn’t the only route to resolving a dispute. We’re well-versed in all types of alternative dispute resolution, and have helped many clients achieve favorable results in arbitration and mediation.”
