John R. Lund Shareholder

"John’s examinations and presentations to the jury were masterful. We trusted them, and they delivered for us.” -Timothy Vetter, Vice President for the Canyons.

Mr. Lund focuses his practice on commercial litigation and the defense of catastrophic product liability, professional liability, and insurance bad faith cases throughout the Intermountain West. With a thirty-year passion for trial practice, Mr. Lund has earned his place as a go-to attorney for clients with high-stakes cases. 
 
One of the most highly regarded trial lawyers in Utah, Mr. Lund is recognized by Chambers USA as one of Utah's leading lawyers for commercial litigation. He is also named as one of the Best Lawyers in America for Products Liability Litigation.

Chambers USA writes: John Lund's recent trial successes have served to bolster his already healthy reputation in the local market. He is experienced at dealing with the most complex of commercial disputes. In 2011 Mr. Lund obtained one of the largest commercial jury verdicts ever awarded in the state of Utah: over $54 million. Mr. Lund is also a leader of the Bar serving as a Utah Bar Commissioner and chairs the Supreme Court’s Advisory Committee on Evidence.  He also serves as a Utah State Bar representative on the Judicial Council. On a national level Mr. Lund serves as the President of The Harmonie Group, an international network of elite and vetted law firms providing defense services to corporations, TPA's and insurance companies.
   
In collaboration with the late Mr. Harold G. Christensen, Mr. Lund developed an innovative specialty service called Snow Trial Services, which provides mock trials, juror focus groups, trial case evaluations, and other trial consultation services.
