David Schoenfeld

Shook Hardy & Bacon LLP

David E. Schoenfeld has been privileged to represent sophisticated clients in complex commercial litigation, including insurance coverage disputes, environmental claims, class actions involving financial, employment and product liability issues, unfair competition and Lanham Act claims, and enforcement of non-compete/non-solicitation clauses.

Dave has appeared in trial and bankruptcy courts in more than a dozen states and handled appeals in the U.S. Supreme Court and two state supreme courts as well as five federal and four state appellate courts. He has relished the opportunity to lead large defense groups and pursue creative and novel theories against able opponents.

Clients, who describe him as “versatile and tenacious,” rely on Dave’s proven ability to resolve contentious high-stakes multiparty disputes through arbitration and mediation. One client told Chambers USA that Dave is “very easy to work with, responsive and very smart.

He is efficient in both litigation and in creatively engineering settlements in very complex matters.” “He is the full package: he is a smart, strategic negotiator and good in court,” still another client told Chambers USA.
