Ian Klein believes that the fundamental role of any lawyer is to be an advocate and he embodies this by being someone who clients know is in their corner no matter the situation. He has represented clients ranging from individuals to Fortune 500 companies, tailoring his approach to the unique needs of each client. The most valuable skill that Ian has developed is a steadfast refusal to quit, and he brings this unflinching attitude and the power of persuasion to every case.
Prior to joining the firm, Ian served as a Judicial Clerk for the Honorable W. Keith Watkins and Myron H. Thompson of the United States District Court for the Middle District of Alabama, gaining invaluable insight into the federal litigation process while sharpening his already-keen research and writing abilities.
Ian represents clients in a variety of complex legal matters, primarily in labor and employment. His representative experience includes helping an oil and gas company successfully sue a competitor for patent infringement, assisting in recovering an elderly individual’s retirement embezzled by an investment firm, enforcing covenants not to compete, achieving zero-sum settlements and take-nothing verdicts, and enforcing the unpaid accounts of lenders in amounts ranging from thousands to millions of dollars.
