Garrett Reed is a trial lawyer whose practice is concentrated on business litigation before state and federal courts, arbitrations, and administrative proceedings, with an emphasis on matters affecting farmers, ranchers, equine owners, landowners, and agribusinesses. 

As a member of the firm’s Agriculture & Equine Industry Group, Garrett represents agricultural entities and producers in general business litigation disputes, landowners in condemnation and inverse condemnation actions, agriculture producers and landowners in matters involving the protection of water rights, agriculture producers in federal crop insurance disputes, and landowners in negotiating wind farm leases. Garrett also devotes a significant portion of his practice to representing equine owners and equine breed associations. 

Garrett also assists in defending national insurers against claims for bad faith, breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, fraud, and negligence, as well as coverage disputes arising under life, auto, commercial general liability, and property insurance policies. 

The Oklahoma native earned his undergraduate degree in agricultural sciences and natural resources with a major in agribusiness from Oklahoma State University in 2017. While at OSU, he was an active member of various organizations like the Oklahoma Agricultural Leadership Encounter Class XIV, served as the Oklahoma FFA Association State President, and was a member of the 2016 OSU World Champion Horse Judging Team.

Garrett then earned his Master of Science degree in agricultural economics from Oklahoma State University in 2019. In this program, he developed a model to simulate the economic impact of various inter-family farm and ranch transition strategies to determine each plan’s probability of success. 

Garrett went on to graduate with honors from the University of Oklahoma College of Law in 2022, where he was named to the Order of the Coif. While pursuing his Juris Doctor, he served as assistant articles editor and candidate mentor of the Oklahoma Law Review, competed on the National Moot Court Competition team, served as the president of the OU Agricultural Law Association, and received five American Jurisprudence Awards for academic excellence.
