Brent A. Lorentz

Communication is the most important part of my practice.

My Approach

I represent clients in complex commercial litigation matters, whether it be related to intellectual property, insurance coverage, or shareholder disputes. Utilizing my background in mechanical engineering, I help clients through the process-intensive aspects of litigation – the nitty gritty of complaints, discovery and depositions – and have an eye for the creativity required to come up with a new legal theory or new way to explain my clients’ position.

I enjoy the matters where I can get involved as early as possible, where I can help clients assess risks and create a strategic plan for the course the litigation should take, to guide them to a more efficient outcome, or prevent a lawsuit before it begins.

Outside of work, I enjoy being active, a task that my three children help ensure. When I can, I still go deer hunting with my dad – which really means I stand around shivering for three hours.
