Newal Squyres has over 40 years of experience as a trial lawyer in commercial, employment, and tort litigation.
A Fellow in the American College of Trial Lawyers, Newal has tried to verdict complex lawsuits in such matters as insurance bad faith; product liability; breach of fiduciary duty and professional negligence; breach of contract and shareholder/LLC agreements; lender liability; wrongful death; breach of government contracts; theft of trade secrets; and wrongful termination/whistleblower claims. He has handled countless other cases before judges and juries in Idaho state courts, and in federal courts in Idaho, Washington, California, Pennsylvania, and Delaware, including appeals before the Idaho Supreme Court and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.
Newal’s responsibility is to solve his client’s problem. He is uniquely prepared to lead his clients to a successful resolution, before or at trial, in whatever type of dispute they might encounter. Some of Newal’s most satisfying work has been helping his clients resolve a dispute early and without having to invest the time, sacrifice, and expense of prolonged litigation.
In recent years, in addition to continuing as an advocate, Newal has added the role of mediator to his practice. He brings the same approach to problem solving and civility in his role as a mediator as he does to the courtroom and has become highly sought after by parties seeking to resolve a wide array disputes through alternate means. Newal has conducted over 90 Zoom mediations during the COVID crisis.
