Clay Gill
Partner, Moffatt Thomas Barrett Rock & Fields, CHTD.

Clay Gill takes on each of his client’s issues as if they were his own. His passion and creativity distinguish him from most lawyers. On the litigation front, he excels at trial strategy. His business and financial background makes him a strong candidate for any commercial litigation matter. On the transactional front, his experience in corporate formation, corporate governance, commercial contracts, employment law, and insurance makes him an ideal candidate for any small or medium sized company looking for an outside general counsel.


Some of Mr. Gill’s litigation successes include:
• Multiple lawsuits against the federal government for breach of contract and quiet title, resulting in settlements exceeding $25 million – Atwood-Leisman v. United States, 72 Fed.Cl. 142 (2006).
• Defense judgment and award of attorney fees in employment discrimination and retaliation lawsuit filed by EEOC in Idaho federal district court.
• Reversal of $2.5 million judgment and order from Idaho Supreme Court directing lower court to enter judgment in favor of Mr. Gill’s client – American Bank v. Wadsworth, 307 P.3d 1212 (2013).
• Defense judgment in catastrophic injury case involving two plaintiffs, one of whom lost both legs, and both of whom were completely and totally disabled as a result of the accident.
