Zachary Losey (Zac)

Zac Losey is an attorney in the firm’s Louisville office where he is a member of the Business Litigation Service Group. His practice focuses on representing people and companies in complex and high-stakes commercial disputes, including lawsuits involving breach of contract, unlawful business interference, non-compete agreements and other restrictive covenants, breach of fiduciary duty, trade secrets, fraud, and defamation.

His experience includes significant early stage victories in federal district court, obtaining temporary restraining orders to enforce non-compete agreements and prevent misappropriation of confidential information, and obtaining a $1.4 million jury verdict as assistant trial counsel in a case involving civil conspiracy and real estate fraud. Zac also has appellate experience in state and federal courts, including successfully defending an appeal in the Sixth Circuit that led to a published decision setting favorable precedent for the client.

Zac uses his experience to help clients successfully navigate commercial disagreements as efficiently and effectively as possible, so they can get back to focusing on their businesses: from dog trainers and solo startup entrepreneurs, to large and mid-size companies in a broad array of industries.
