Samuel G. Harrod IV


Commercial Litigation

Sam is a commercial litigator and employment attorney, focused on advising employers on employment policies and practices; representing business clients in employment agreement, employment discrimination, and contract disputes; and representing commercial lenders in complex workouts and foreclosures.

With over 25 years of experience, Sam has first-chaired many bench and jury trials, and has had numerous successes on behalf of clients. He strives to push cases to conclusion as quickly as the legal process allows, and is always looking for ways to outmaneuver opposing counsel.

Sam joined MPS in 1996.

“In commercial litigation right now, we’re as good as you’ll find. Our team is smart, savvy, and absolutely relentless. Nobody wants to face them in court.”
