Summary

Mr. Leitess’ practice has a national scope, serving clients located around the country in litigation and transactional matters arising in Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia. His practice focuses on the areas of substantive law that businesses rely upon daily.

The majority of Mr. Leitess’ daily professional activity relates to business litigation and arbitration, however a substantial amount of his time is dedicated to transactional matters and “outside general counsel” services for day-to-day operations of clients who do not have an in-house legal department.

Mr. Leitess has 25 years of experience as “first chair” attorney in numerous evidentiary and non-evidentiary hearings, court trials, jury trial and appellate matters in state and federal courts around the country, including Maryland, Washington DC, Virginia, Florida, Ohio, New York, Pennsylvania and California. He has argued hundreds of motions and appeals, and participated in meditations and arbitrations. He is a prolific legal writer and has drafted and filed a very large number of pleadings and motion papers in connection with those representations.
