Mooney Wieland: Global Reach with a Personal Touch

After years of working at high-profile corporate firms, Mooney Wieland’s partners decided it was time to forge a new path together. We sought to create a boutique law firm focused on building meaningful business relationships with our clients by providing personalized legal counsel and services. Mooney Wieland offers clients a better chance of reaching favorable outcomes in their business ventures and disputes because we care about earning trust, remaining transparent about our clients’ legal issues, and tirelessly working to help clients achieve the best possible results.

Our firm operates on a global basis from Boise, Idaho and Pago Pago, American Samoa. Despite the thousands of miles between our offices, our attorneys are unified in responding to our clients’ legal disputes throughout the American West and the Pacific Rim. We have deep roots in each location, and our attorneys are especially connected to the communities they serve. We offer expertise and experience to help corporate and organizational clients resolve legal disputes and prevent them from happening by developing proactive legal solutions.

Simply put, Mooney Wieland is uniquely positioned to help businesses with almost any legal issue, wherever they are.

Our Connection to Idaho

Boise is becoming a hub for business operations seeking a fresh start or new expansion in the Mountain West. As enterprises grow to strengthen the region’s economy from Idaho’s capital city, they may inevitably face legal challenges they need to overcome.

Whether it’s a dispute in business law, employment law, intellectual property law, corporate governance, or another business matter, our Idaho commercial litigation and business attorneys are capable of assisting clients throughout the region from our downtown Boise offices. We have broad experience in Idaho corporate formation, transactional, and regulatory laws, as well as experience in both state and federal court litigation, administrative proceedings, and appeals.

Serving American Samoa

Located near the territorial capitol, Pago Pago, our American Samoa office supports businesses when they need to establish or expand operations in the Pacific region or pursue or defend virtually any kind of commercial litigation matter. Our practice in American Samoa is the continuation of a firm founded in 1994 as Rose Joneson Vargas (RJV), building on RJV’s decades of experience as American Samoa’s leading commercial law practice.

Our American Samoa business attorneys have expertise in the unique regulatory landscape in the territory, as well as expertise in handling corporate formation and transactional matters under American Samoa’s unique communal land system and corporate code. Our American Samoa litigation attorneys have a proven track record of pursing and defending a wide variety of commercial disputes and other litigation in the High Court of American Samoa, including admiralty/maritime disputes, Jones Act claims, and vessel arrests arising from the vibrant local tuna fishing industry and shipping industry.

Leveraging Technology for Our Clients

You deserve the best possible legal representation, and we at Mooney Wieland believe that means using technology and digital tools to fight for your interests. We are actively changing the way law is practiced by bringing technology to the center of our business litigationes.

There is a growing number of tech companies, like TCDI, building tools to help lawyers like us secure the best possible chances of success for clients like you. We have partnered with several of these companies to augment our services and capability to respond to your legal challenges with speed, efficiency, and from new perspectives.

Some ways we’ve brought technology into the fold include:

  • E-Discovery Management – Our partnership with TCDI and other companies provides us with the means to effortlessly collect important documents from you on a remote basis. The tools we use ensure the process meets legal requirements for investigation. We can also defer to traditional methods of document acquisition and management if these better suit you.
  • Cloud Storage & Discovery Review Analytics – By partnering with TCDI, we are also able to optimize our efficiency when it comes to organizing, managing, and reviewing documents submitted for discovery. Analytics tools also provide us with unique insights into data or trends among discovery materials that can help us identify opportunities for your success.
  • Document Production – Our document review system exists on the cloud and works in real-time, meaning that we can more easily and efficiently prepare documents for production or withholding.
  • Remote Proceedings – The COVID-19 pandemic has caused substantial changes in the way depositions, commercial arbitrations, court hearings, and even trials are handled, and some of those changes likely are here to stay. We are equipped with the latest audio-visual and communications technologies to allow us to seamlessly handle almost any proceeding safely and effectively.
