overview

Savannah Fox applies creative problem-solving skills in her diverse litigation practice counseling businesses of all sizes and types.

Savannah works on state and federal litigations across the country involving employment law matters, shareholder disputes, class actions, and securities. Complimenting this work, Savannah also represents corporations and employee stock ownership plan (ESOP) trustees as trustee counsel. Throughout these cases, she has handled key aspects of pretrial litigation, including motion practice, discovery, and methods of early resolution.

As a result of her experiences with a wide range of legal issues, Savannah believes that client success depends on one constant: mastering the story. By immersing herself in the client’s history, whether short or decades long, Savannah is able to derive tailored litigation and resolution strategies.

Savannah lives in Lakewood with her fiancé Nick and her rescue dog Archie. If she is not behind her laptop, you will likely find her on the golf course or at a home improvement store, depending on the weather.
