Jeremy Adamson is the founding partner of Kunzler Bean & Adamson’s litigation group and works primarily from the firm’s Salt Lake City and La Jolla offices. Jeremy represents clients in a wide variety of disputes, beginning in the earliest stages and proceeding through trial. He has significant experience in protecting his clients’ interests in commercial disputes, which often include claims of breach of fiduciary duties, fraud, and breach of contract. 

Jeremy also has extensive experience representing his clients in employment related disputes, intellectual property and trade secret disputes and in government regulatory actions including cases brought by the Federal Trade Commission and Securities and Exchange Commission, and catastrophic personal injury matters.

Jeremy’s experience with employment related disputes includes defending employers against various claims of discrimination, wrongful termination, breaches of employment agreements, contract, and wage claims. He devotes a significant portion of his practice to advising clients on how to avoid litigation by complying with both federal and state employment laws.

Jeremy regulatory experience includes defending individuals and entities against claims of violations of the Federal Trade Commission Act and the Telemarketing and Consumer Fraud and Abuse Prevention Act, and he has successfully negotiated resolutions of those claims on behalf of his clients. He also has experience defending clients against Securities and Exchange Commission claims of violations of the Securities Act.

Jeremy started his career as a litigation associate for the law firm of Sullivan & Cromwell in Palo Alto, California. Prior to joining KB&A, he worked as in-house counsel for a large mortgage servicing company where he managed hundreds of litigations nationwide. His experience as in-house counsel has given him a clear understanding of the challenges his clients address when faced with litigation and the steps that can be taken to reduce those difficulties. Given his experience managing litigation for a mortgage servicer, Jeremy has successfully handled a number of real estate and consumer finance related litigations including title disputes and judicial foreclosure actions.

Jeremy has been recognized in the 2013 edition of Utah Business magazine as one of Utah’s Legal Elite “Up & Coming” lawyers in the area of civil litigation. He has also been recognized as a Mountain States Super Lawyer in 2013 through 2018.
