Commercial Litigation

Mr. Ed Fox has been our attorney for over 30 years and has never lost a case for us. Several years ago we were involved in litigation involving a very large oil company who had threatened a half-million dollar lawsuit with regard to a large construction project. Within two weeks of being notified of this threat, Mr. Ed Fox of Bassford Remele was able to turn this lawsuit around and get this large oil company to instead send us a half-million dollar settlement in our favor. In addition we incurred very little expense to support our legal position and a final settlement. It was unbelievable to us that Mr. Ed Fox of Bassford Remele was able to get us a settlement this quickly.

Rachel Brownell Nationwide Agribusiness

Commercial Litigation

Many times our industry does not win in court....but, we did win. And we did because our attorney understood the issues and presented the facts with a clarity that resulted in every juror finding in our favor. Maybe the best way to describe the process is that it was very organized and done very professionally. I hope we don't need to go through an ordeal like it again, but if we do that Firm will be our first phone call.

Paula Montgomery Gillette Children's Specialty Healthcare

Medical Malpractice Law - Defendants

We've been a long-term client of Bassford Remele and have had several very important malpractices cases with Mark Whitmore and the malpractice team over the last several years. It's important that we have a firm that understands and comports their behavior as a reflection of our foundation's values and mission. Mark and team do just that! They are appropriately empathic and professional with our staff but also with our former patients. They are comfortable owning a mistake and facilitating a way of "making it right" as much as that is possible, as they are putting up a necessary defense. I've become increasing frustrated with firms not giving an opinion or seeming to be afraid to actually litigate a claim. That is not the Bassford Remele malpractice team! Finally, I admire the way that partners teach, support, and endorse the associates in a way that is visible to clients. I know the associates working on my case by name, and it gives me the confidence that this team is going to continue to thrive and excel into the future.

Construction Law

J. Scott Andresen is an extremely knowledgeable attorney. I am completely confident in Scott's assessment of legal situations. His depth of knowledge, experience, and his ability to translate "legalese" into laymen's terms is unmatched. He is calm, astute, and trustworthy on matters large and small.

Construction Law

Bassford Remele has a very knowledgeable and experienced staff of lawyers that practice in the area of construction disputes. They have handled various construction cases for my company over many years and have the right lawyers and support staff ready to handle any new matter. The firm is very dedicated to providing excellent representation to its clients in a cost-effective manner. Shareholder Scott Andresen stands out especially, as being an excellent construction lawyer who has the right balance of being able to work effectively with opposing counsel to find solutions to disputes and to provide toughness and aggressive advocacy when necessary.
