The firm’s founder—Jason E. Wright—joined the U.S. Marine Corps while in high school and went on to serve honorably for eight years across the globe as an infantryman, Scout Sniper, and sniper instructor (training over 300 Marines in mission planning), earning multiple personal awards, then worked two years as an “independent contractor” supporting U.S. Government activities in high-threat overseas postings.
Snipers are one of the most cost-effective tools in the military arsenal. Carrying only what is needed on their backs and relying principally on stealth, sniper teams operate independently out in front of friendly lines—at the “tip of the spear”—to provide intelligence on enemy activities and deliver lethal effects on precise targets from up to 1,000 yards or more away, all at a fraction of the cost of larger options (surveillance assets, missiles, large raid forces, etc.) while doing so in a way that minimizes the collateral damage. Military commanders call that a “force multiplier” … something small that can achieve the same or even better results at far less cost.
Wright Commercial Litigation was established with a similar objective in mind: a small independent legal services provider that can, using either full-scale representation or limited scope engagements, deploy a premium level of skill on behalf of select clients in targeted ways that saves money.
The firm’s logo represents that dual history and purpose by drawing from the symbol of a U.S. military sniper. On a commander’s battle map, sniper teams are identified by the letter “S” with an arrow pointing through in the team’s primary direction of fire. Wright Commercial Litigation’s trademark features an italicized “W” with a spear that points in only one direction: up and higher to signify the firm’s mission, ethics, and value to clients.
