Associate

overview

Anna Gecht is a litigator who represents businesses of all sizes and industries at the trial and appellate levels nationally.

Anna represents clients in state and federal courts and ADR forums. She has handled all aspects of legal disputes – from pre-litigation counseling to appellate advocacy – and has successfully resolved lawsuits involving business torts, shareholder disputes, breach of contract claims, breach of fiduciary duty claims, real estate transactions, and construction disputes.

Anna believes excellent advocacy requires preparation. With a keen attention to detail and a natural curiosity, Anna immerses herself in each case to identify and understand the legal issues, facts, and complexities. She enjoys synthesizing this information to develop a case strategy and to craft a compelling story that she champions at every opportunity.

Knowing that not every case should go to trial, Anna also remains focused on evaluating litigation risk and developing tailored resolution strategies to achieve each client’s objectives.

Anna is a proud Cleveland native. She lives on “the east side” with her husband Mitch and their Cavapoo Ruthie B. Gecht (named after RBG). Anna enjoys spending time with family and attempting DIY projects. Once spring hits, you can find Anna rowing on the Cuyahoga River, playing the occasional round of golf, and cheering on Cleveland’s baseball team.
