Riley W. Snider represents insurance carriers in a broad range of commercial litigation and premises liability matters, as well as wrongful death claims. Prior to joining Swift Currie, Riley represented individuals and businesses as both plaintiffs and defendants in complex commercial litigation involving breach of contract, fraud, accounting and fraudulent transfer, as well as employment cases involving wage and hour discrimination. His experience includes jury trials in Georgia Superior Court.
In addition to his law degree, Riley has a financial background and received a joint MBA while in law school. This enables him to understand the business side of his clients' needs and legal concerns and has led to experience handling delicate and sensitive matters. For example, he represented individuals in a highly contentious, multimillion-dollar "business divorce" in which family members accused one another of engaging in fraudulent transactions, breach of fiduciary duties and self-dealing. Riley helped all parties walk the fine line of keeping family and business separate so he could assist his clients with making deliberate business decisions.
Riley understands the importance of teamwork, strategic thinking and efficiency in order to provide the highest quality service to his clients while reining in costs. His clients appreciate that he is dedicated and hard-working, yet personable.
While in law school, Riley served on the Mercer Law Review and was an academic success mentor.
