EXCEEDING EXPECTATIONS
Our Team
Jeremy P. Kreger
Overview

Jeremy Kreger positions his clients to reach their goals. As a commercial litigator and business counselor, Jeremy resolves a wide range of disputes on their behalf: over shareholder agreements, restrictive covenants in employment contracts, business breakups, contractual and fiduciary obligations, trademark and copyright issues, labor relations, and the misappropriation of trade secrets, for example. Jeremy knows that his clients' success depends upon his understanding of their objectives in every single matter he undertakes.

Jeremy represents entrepreneurs, small businesses, large corporations, real estate developers, financial institutions, insurance companies, public entities. His clients appreciate his regular, open communication, his understanding of their business and financial goals, and his style and strategy of advocating for their interests in a way that mirrors their own. Equally important, they know that they can rely on him to resolve their disputes quickly and efficiently, leveraging their strengths to obtain the results they seek in any given matter.

He assisted a multinational software company whose main competitor lured away a top salesman who stole trade secrets and violated restrictive covenants in successfully blocking their former employee and his new employer from using their proprietary information. He helped a shareholder of an international internet retailer successfully defend claims of oppression and breach of fiduciary duty brought by the other shareholder, to obtain sole ownership of the company. And he aggressively defended and favorably resolved an action brought by a wholesale broker engaged in scorched-earth litigation against an international insurance company.

Jeremy prosecutes and defends a variety of claims for participants across the real estate industry, involving actions to quiet title, construction disputes, mechanic’s and broker’s liens, disputes with municipalities, title insurance claims, and commercial and industrial landlord-tenant issues. In one recent matter, he obtained a complete victory against a large oil company in favor of landowner after the company tried to force the sale of his client’s property at a fraction of its value based on a purchase option and a lease.
