Practice head(s):


‘The Beck Reed Riden attorneys are very responsive to our needs. They are true subject matter experts with respect to non-competition agreements. We rely heavily on this firm for their expertise in this particular area. As a firm, we find that their fees are fair and reasonable for the services provided.’

‘The team at Beck Reed Riden is very “hands on”. They are fully engaged in the matters that we bring to them. Russell Beck and Nicole Daley are excellent attorneys who communicate well with our leadership team while providing outstanding advice and counsel to our company.’

‘When considering law firms, I reached out to state reps working to pass intellectual property law, as well as lawyers I knew, for recommendations. Beck Reed Riden was overwhelming the firm recommended. Upon engaging them it became clear why. Their knowledge of not only intellectual property law, but employment issues in general, was at the core of navigating my legal matter to a successful conclusion. In addition, their immediate attention to all matters and the care and passion they showed me throughout my ordeal went above my highest expectations.’

‘Russell Beck’s dedication to see my case through and ability to adjust to come up with successful solutions as my case took unexpected turns was amazing. It’s not only his knowledge and experience that stands out, but his compassion and genuine interest in my matter that was greatly valued.’

‘Beck Reed’s expertise in the areas of non-compete/trade secrets law is unparalleled. What makes them particularly unique is their dedication to the client – there is no delay in any response, they are available whenever needed – day, night, weekend, and their dedication to our company makes them stand out from all other outside counsel that we use.’

‘Russell Beck and Laura Raisty are particularly knowledgeable, dedicated, and responsive. There is no comparison to other firms with respect to the degree to which I feel they value our relationship, and the level of attention to our needs that they provide.’

‘Russell Beck is one of the foremost trade secret litigators in the country. He is often asked for his opinions about pending and prospective legislation in the trade secrets and non-compete arenas. His knowledge of not only the existing law, but where the law is headed makes his practice unique. Russell and his team are also highly-regarded litigators who regularly obtain excellent results for their clients, but without the unnecessary aggression or nastiness that is often displayed by other lawyers.’

‘Russell Beck stands out as not only an expert in the field of trade secret and restrictive covenant law, but someone whose opinion is sought by legislators, government employees and the media whenever legislation in this arena is being considered. Russell’s approach to litigation also differentiates him from competitors. Although his firm is small, he can litigate with anyone and can do so in a cost-effective manner. His results for his clients speak for themselves.’
