James Bergstedt has extensive experience in general civil, commercial, debt collection, and personal injury litigation. Described by his clients as “an excellent advocate,” “impeccable,” “pivotal,” “responsive,” and “trustworthy,” James takes seriously the responsibility and privilege to pursue and defend the rights and interests of a diverse clientele—from construction companies to high-end antique car dealers, from event coordinators to trucking companies, from insurance agencies to associations of local governments.
James is known for his client-centered approach of conflict resolution, with a focus on effective, efficient, and responsive representation catered to each client’s specific needs. Landlords or tenants embroiled in contract disputes receive the same focus and attention to detail from James as do out-of-state car dealerships defending against claims by Utah consumers. Individuals pursued by aggressive, former employers garner James’s full attention and commitment to quality representation in navigating the complexities of non-solicitation and non-compete agreements, just as his corporate clients do in drafting or revising the same to conform with recent changes in the law.
With an unwavering commitment to guiding his business clients through commercial transactions, entity formation, employment matters, and general support to avoid foreseeable conflict, James understands current trends in the marketplace and keeps his clients abreast of the same—identifying deficiencies and corrective action to bring businesses into compliance. Similarly, injured clients have benefited from James’s zealous advocacy in obtaining excellent results to make them whole and prepare them for future uncertainties.
Recognized by his peers as a Mountain States Super Lawyers “Rising Star” and by Utah Business Magazine as “Utah Legal Elite,” James is licensed to practice in Utah State and Federal Courts and in the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals.
