Robert Edinger has been representing clients in complex civil litigation for over 37 years. Over that period he has served as a lead litigation partner in several law firms in Oklahoma City. Robert's litigation practice has focused on the following areas: energy, environment, antitrust, telecommunications, shareholder derivative, securities receiverships, insurance receiverships, and family trust disputes. He has represented clients in a number of high profile trials and appeals, including a $28 million dollar jury verdict in an antitrust case tried in Oklahoma City federal court, followed by a successful defense of that verdict before the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals and the United States Supreme Court. He also successfully defended clients accused of violating federal antitrust and racketeering laws in connection with the management of a saltwater disposal business. In a case of first impression under 10th Circuit federal law, he succeeded in establishing that a pledger of securities has standing as a "seller" under federal securities fraud law when the securities are sold to pay off loans against which the securities were pledged. Recently, he oversaw lawsuits filed in multiple federal district courts around the country involving a $123 million dollar disputed interpretation of professional liability insurance policies, resulting in successful appellate judgments issued by the 9th and 10th Circuit Courts of Appeal.       

            Robert is licensed to practice in Oklahoma state courts and in various federal courts, including the United States Supreme Court, the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals, the Western and Northern Districts of Oklahoma, and the Northern and Southern Districts of Texas.  He maintains the Martindale Hubbell highest Preeminent Attorney Recognition (AV) rating for skills and ethics based on professional peer reviews. 

            In 1974 Robert obtained his Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism from Oklahoma City University.  In 1979 he earned his Juris Doctor degree from the University of Oklahoma.  Since law school, he has spoken at seminars and written articles on issues involving the areas of complex litigation covered by his trial practice.
