Thomas T. Reith


Thomas Reith litigates and manages nationwide complex commercial litigation for companies ranging from Fortune 100 companies to family-owned businesses. He has experience in an array of industries, including banking, commercial real estate, construction, professional services, and technology.

Though a litigator by training, Tom views litigation as a last resort. Tom prefers that his clients spend their effort, resources, and time on transactional matters that lead to economic growth for them and their businesses. To that end, Tom counsels clients on compliance, risk assessment, and litigation avoidance to keep them out of the courtroom and in the boardroom.

Outside the Firm

Tom enjoys playing in his Temple’s softball league, landscaping and gardening, and spending time with his wife, three young adult children, and two Boxer dogs.
