Throughout his career, Mr. Ross has tenaciously – and successfully – battled big, medium-sized, and small law firms in high-stakes litigation. Those lawsuits have included issues related to corporate shareholder disputes, breach of contract, unfair competition, unauthorized use of trade secrets, violations of non-compete provisions, antitrust, commercial fraud, tortious interference with contract, and franchising (among others).
He also has handled employment matters involving claims of wrongful discharge, unlawful discrimination, sexual harassment, breach of fiduciary duties, breach of post-employment agreements, and non-payment of overtime wages.
Mr. Ross has significant experience providing non-litigation services as well. His transactional practice includes the review and negotiation of asset purchase/buy-sell agreements, franchise agreements, non-compete/non-disclosure contracts, employment-related agreements, and other contracts. He also works as an “outside general counsel” who provides day-to-day and as-needed advice to his business clients.
Indeed, Mr. Ross’s transactional and advisory work is informed by his experience as a trial lawyer. Having seen firsthand the ultimate consequences of many types of business actions and inactions, he is better able to foresee potential problems and therefore put his clients in a better position to either avoid liability or prevail in future lawsuits.
Mr. Ross is licensed to practice law in Maryland, Washington, D.C., and New Jersey, and is admitted to practice before the federal courts in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey and the United States District Court for the District of Maryland.
He is currently the Chair of the Maryland State Bar Association’s Franchise and Distribution Law Committee and a member of a committee convened by the Maryland Securities Commissioner to examine possible changes to the administration of the Maryland Franchise Registration and Disclosure Law. Mr. Ross is also a member of the Bar Association of Montgomery County, Maryland.
