While Terry Farmer has worked in many different legal arenas over the years, his practice remains grounded in commercial, financial, and corporate law. Within these areas his work has tended to concentrate in areas of business disputes and transactional work. Accordingly, Terry’s time is about equally split between the courtroom and the negotiating table. He finds that the business experience he has gained with over 30 years of law firm management experience and as acting as general counsel to clients in the banking, telecommunication, manufacturing, construction, and theme park industries gives him the perspective and skills to approach his clients’ problems as both legal issues and business problems.
