Ethan Smith is an associate in the Seattle office of Lewis Brisbois and a member of the General Liability Practice. Ethan's practice encompasses a range of issues faced by corporate entities and institutions, including employment matters, commercial disputes, class actions, and regulatory compliance. Ever mindful of the impact of litigation on his clients–in terms of money, time, and stress–Ethan seeks to quickly and efficiently resolve disputes whenever possible. He prides himself on being a strong negotiator, able to bring parties to the table and reach favorable resolution. However, Ethan is comfortable in the courtroom, prepared to aggressively litigate matters in defense of his clients when necessary.

Ethan's practice increasingly includes data privacy and cybersecurity–issues that are particularly salient in tech-focused Seattle. He has defended major corporations in suits arising from high-profile data breaches and counseled clients on best practices and compliance. He is currently pursuing CIPP certification to further build upon this expertise.

Ethan is particularly focused on complex, high-value cases, ranging from civil rights suits to class actions to multi-party commercial disputes. He brings to bear an attention to detail necessary to manage such complex litigation, while keeping his clients' priorities front and center.
