Keith Call specializes in handling trials and appeals related to commercial litigation and professional liability matters. His expertise lies in handling complex commercial litigation cases for well-known local businesses.
Keith is highly regarded as the top external legal consultant for companies who prefer to steer clear of costly big-city lawyers and invest their resources in Utah. He has a remarkable history of achievements in professional liability defense cases across the state.
Keith represents large and small businesses, and business people, in nearly every kind of business dispute, including significant “bet the company” cases. Examples include claims involving breaches of contract, interference with business relations, defamation, fraud, covenants-not-to-compete, and corporate and partnership disputes. He has represented many technology companies in software development disputes, licensing disputes, and other intellectual property matters.
Keith is very experienced with noncompete agreements and claims of stolen or misused information. He fully understands that some noncompete agreements can unnecessarily—and perhaps unlawfully—prohibit employee advancement, a well-drafted agreement holds up in court. Whether drafting, reviewing, or litigating a noncompete agreement, Keith will ensure the client’s rights, as well as crucial trade secrets, are protected.
Keith has a very active professional liability defense practice. He is a true lawyer’s lawyer and has successfully defended many of Utah’s most prestigious law firms. He also represents insurance agents, accountants, appraisers, engineers, design professionals, and healthcare professionals.
Keith is well-regarded by his peers in the legal profession. In 2014, he received a Distinguished Service Award from the Utah Chapter of the Federal Bar Association. He has spearheaded and continues to lead the Utah Bar Litigation Section’s efforts to recruit and train more lawyers to serve as guardians ad litem – attorneys appointed by the court to represent the best interests of children in highly contentious family litigation. He also serves as a guardian ad litem himself.
Since 2010, Keith has provided guidance to Utah lawyers via a regular column, “Focus on Ethics and Civility,” that appears every other month in the Utah Bar Journal.
Keith is a member of the firm’s Board of Directors.
