For over twenty-five years, Trey Peacock has won cases based on science and data, successfully representing companies and individuals in complex business disputes. He has been lead or principal trial counsel for plaintiffs and defendants in state and federal courts in twenty states, including California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Texas, and Washington.
Clients seek out Trey for his unique comfort level with highly technical, data-driven matters, including damages. His successes span technical areas as varied as offshore rig construction (in an international arbitration); convoluted title histories for thousands of oil and gas leases (in an energy lawsuit in state court); the underpinnings of random number generation (in a series of patent cases); the sciences of toxicology, epidemiology, and environmental exposure (in state and federal toxic tort matters); and the use of environmental air modeling (in a variety of cases, including a plaintiffs’ class action for environmental property damage). Whether a favorable result depends upon the proper calculation of damages or the application of advanced scientific theories, Trey is a quick study and an effective advocate.
