Jason H. Throne
Joseph Garrity brings over two decades of experience in the areas of general and complex civil litigation to the Lorium team. Joe also uses his battle-tested knowledge to assist parties in the resolution of legal disputes as a mediator in the areas of franchising, intellectual property, business, condominiums, and construction defects.
Prior to attending New York Law School, Mr. Garrity spent several years working as an engineer in the industrial and construction industries. Before joining the firm, Mr. Garrity built his own boutique practice and has enjoyed success litigating complex commercial matters in a large national law firm, and several specialized boutique firms.
Throughout his legal career, he has coupled his analytical engineer’s mind and legal training to effectively litigate matters involving franchising, intellectual property (patents, copyrights and trademarks), condominiums, construction, and business disputes. Mr. Garrity has developed a concentrated niche representing local, national and international franchisees and franchisors in the complex and heavily regulated world of franchising and intellectual property.
As a seasoned litigator, Mr. Garrity has tried numerous cases throughout the country in both state and federal courts at both the trial and appellate level as lead counsel, taking cases from their inception through multi-million dollar settlements and verdicts.
Mr. Garrity also serves as the director/president of Shine MSD, a not-for-profit foundation formed in the wake of the Parkland shooting that seeks to heal the community through the arts. With Mr. Garrity’s intimate involvement and steering of the organization, it has grown from a heartfelt concept to a nationwide platform for mental healing through artistic expression coupled with mental health programs for students. His tireless involvement in furthering the mission of Shine MSD is a true reflection of Mr. Garrity’s character and the dedication he brings to everything he undertakes.
