The clients Elijah represents include major financial institutions, health care software companies, construction and oil field companies, and an international food industry giant, to name a few. Elijah has also gained considerable insight regarding contractual indemnification and the impact of the Texas Anti-Indemnity Act (TAIA) through his experience briefing issues before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit and the Texas Supreme Court.
