Marrick Armstrong joined Adams and Reese in 2001 and practices in the areas of products liability, casualty and coverage, and governmental relations.
Integral to Marrick's practice are three principles: understanding the client's business within its industry, working as a partner to that client, and always valuing his clients' time. He studies clients' businesses within the larger context of their industry and the forces that act upon them. Using that information he remains on the lookout for emerging issues, laws and regulations, which could pose a problem for that client. He always strives to return calls within a day and stay in communication with clients, because communication is key to serving his clients' needs.
A sampling of the commercial and personal injury matters he has handled include:
· Defending premises owners against personal injury liability claims.
· Defending parent companies in vicarious liability and corporate veil piercing litigation stemming from the alleged torts of the parent companies' subsidiaries.
· Construction litigation, including defense of subcontractors in multi-party lawsuits against them brought by project owners or general contractors.
· Defense of product manufacturers in lawsuits alleging defects in product or workmanship caused or contributed to a personal injury or economic loss.
· Representation of heavy equipment financing companies in breach of contract actions.
· Defense of financial institutions in wrongful foreclosure actions.
Marrick has broad experience in business and commercial litigation, including multi-party commercial and construction-based disputes, contract disputes, real estate matters, and financing disputes.
He has defended solo proprietors, major restaurant franchises, refineries, major energy exploration and production, and service companies in Louisiana and Texas. His experience also includes a variety of appellate matters that have become reported decisions.
His experience also includes assisting businesses of all sizes in formation, contractual negotiations, disputes, and lease negotiations.
Outside of the office, he volunteers with the Greater Houston Partnership and is generally interested in the prosperity of Houston-based enterprises and the future prosperity of the City of Houston. He also enjoys writing and reading works of fiction.
