E. Colin Thompson represents clients in substantial commercial litigations and arbitrations, including complex class actions, deceptive and unfair trade practices claims, international disputes, intellectual property rights matters, contract, real estate, franchise and product liability litigations, and other business and personal injury tort matters.

Colin has tried jury and non-jury trials, and has represented clients in arbitration proceedings and hearings, and in significant mediations. Opposing counsel have commended him for being a "remarkably skilled attorney who has always exhibited the highest professional standards."

Colin is one of only a handful of lawyers nationwide who have been part of trial teams that have taken multiple class actions to jury verdicts. He has also represented franchisors, retailers, education service providers and international conglomerates in defense of class actions. Defending and trying these class actions has provided Colin extensive experience in not only the nuances of large class actions but in defending substantive claims for breach of warranty, breach of contract, violations of state unfair and deceptive trade practices acts, violations of state sales tax collection acts, negligent and intentional misrepresentations and fraud claims.

For over four years, Colin served as trial counsel for the United States distributor for a major automobile manufacturer in defense of multi-jurisdictional class actions. In this role, he defended the distributor in class actions taken to jury in the states of Pennsylvania and New Jersey, appealed the certification of a Florida class of owners of the manufacturer's automobiles and defended a nation-wide class action in federal court in Florida. Colin currently represents automobile distributors, product manufactures and distributors, and state agencies in class actions pending in Florida trial courts, Florida appellate courts and Federal District Courts.

Colin and his Miami-based colleagues represent corporations and individuals in international disputes, such as international litigation and transnational arbitration. These representations include complex jurisdictional disputes concerning common law and civil law issues, sovereign immunity, act of state contentions, international investment law, corporate governance, anti-suit injunctions, cross-border energy disputes (oil and gas, co-generation and geothermal), asset tracing, cross-border interim relief and issues concerning the recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments and arbitral awards. His representation of clients on these matters are pending before United States District courts and international arbitration authority.

Colin has also represented and currently represents a variety of corporations in commercial and IP litigation actions involving intellectual property rights, shareholder claims, RICO Act violations, breach of contract allegations, tortious interference with contracts and business relations, and a variety of claims brought against builders, developers, franchisors and commercial landlords. He has jury trial, non-jury trial, mediation and arbitration experience in such actions.
