Of Counsel Nicole Westbrook
Of Counsel

Practice Group: Litigation
Licensed In: Colorado

A versatile litigator, Nicole Westbrook has tried and argued business matters from both sides of the aisle, plaintiff and defendant, winning hard-fought insights along with outcomes that improve her clients’ lives. From defamation to breach of fiduciary duties to fraud, complex contract disputes, commercial real estate litigation, and all else between, Nicole litigates matters in federal and state courts and arbitration venues throughout the United States.

A former federal law clerk in the busiest trial court in the United States, Nicole’s trial practice focuses on one thing: the success of her clients. She works with dedication and commitment to prevail in significant, high-stakes business disputes that others will not try. Past successes in underdog cases of IP theft and trade secret litigation have restored claimant property to the rightful owners and defended against millions of dollars in claimed damages.

Nicole is also a practicing MLM trial attorney with experience defending network marketing companies and distributors in private litigation against MLMs. She brings a highly developed understanding of the laws–statute and case, regulations, and self-regulatory restraints in place to prevent fraud, securities violations, and FTC complaints. She handles all aspects of litigation from injunctions to investigations, discovery, mediation, arbitration, litigation and settlement in matters of conflict between distributors, breaches of policies and procedures by distributors, misleading sales tactics, shareholder disputes and privacy issues, and other areas of legal controversy involving MLMs.

Putting the client first also means giving clients greater access to talented and skilled attorneys. Nicole is an instructor for the National Institute for Trial Advocacy (NITA), where she builds the skills of fellow litigators. She’s been named a Martindale Hubble AV-Preeminent Attorney and to Super Lawyers as well as named a Super Lawyers “Rising Stars”, recognized as an “Up and Coming Lawyer” and a “Compleat Lawyer” by Law Week Colorado.
