Eric Guerin

Practice/Organization Description


Eric lives on an inland lake and much of his practice concerns challenges faced by other riparian owners,

including boundary disputes, quiet title actions, deed restrictions, adverse possession, land use and zoning

matters, environmental issues, riparian rights, easements, road ends and access issues. Though not unique to

riparians, waterfront property owners encounter these issues more than most. Eric's real estate practice also

includes landlord/tenant law, construction lien and other construction law matters.


Family businesses present unique challenges for those who choose to combine their personal and professional

lives. While the rewards can be great, conflict, leadership and succession issues can be particularly tense. No

business wants to be a party to a lawsuit, and those anxieties are heightened when the litigants are family

members. Eric has significant experience litigating claims involving breach of fiduciary duty, aiding and

abetting breach of fiduciary duty, tortious interference, trade secrets, conversion and the misappropriation of

confidential business information.


Eric has represented individuals and businesses, including Fortune 500 companies, in a variety of contract,

dealership, franchise and other business disputes. Many of those matters involve a tremendous volume of

documents and electronically stored information. Eric is proficient in matters of e-discovery, including

preservation and production protocols. In addition to taking dozens of cases through trial, Eric has handled

appeals in both state and federal appellate courts.
