PRACTICE AREAS

CORPORATE GENERAL COUNSEL

You should have one attorney that you can call 24/7 with any legal issue and feel comfortable that it will get addressed timely and reasonably by an expert.  

 

As your general counsel, Cooper can handle all your legal needs, regardless of the specialization required, by coordinating and managing other attorneys engaged to handle your different legal issues, assuming it isn’t something that he can do himself. He can oversee the strategy, the costs, and the results, and most importantly, he can help prevent costly surprises. 

HIGHER EDUCATION

Cooper Shattuck understands the overall organization and structure of colleges and universities. 

 

Having served as General Counsel for Alabama’s largest university and employer during one of the most challenging times for colleges and universities in the U.S., Cooper grasps the challenges facing universities today, such as Title IX, compliance, NCAA and athletics, governance, and risk management, and the importance of bringing process to the chaos, making him one of the most highly experienced higher education attorneys in Alabama.

Litigation is a process, not a product. It involves strategic thinking, calculated implementation, and effective written and oral advocacy. 

 

Cooper Shattuck is experienced with all facets of complex litigation including multi-district litigation (MDLs), construction, environmental, defective products, personal injury, wrongful death, consumer fraud, class actions, employment, bankruptcy, financial, oil and gas, healthcare, and intellectual property. 

COMPLEX
LITIGATION

Alternative dispute resolution methods such as arbitration and mediation are time and money-saving alternatives to traditional litigation. 

Over the last two decades, Cooper has mediated cases involving governmental entities, domestic parties, small and large corporations, and individuals.

ALTERNATIVE DISPUTE
RESOLUTION

Lawyer discipline can make or break a practice either because of the new required publication of disciplinary history or associated malpractice claims, or both.

 

Cooper Shattuck is well acquainted with the lawyer disciplinary process and procedure having served on Alabama State Bar Disciplinary Commission and the Disciplinary Board.
