Bradley lawyers use their talents, judgment, work ethic, and experience to go above and beyond expectations to help clients meet their goals.
Bradley’s Litigation Practice Group
Bradley’s Litigation Practice Group knows the stakes for your business in every case we litigate. From fighting bet-the-company lawsuits to resolving daily risk management issues and everything in between, we understand that helping clients achieve their business goals efficiently and cost-effectively is the greatest measure of success. Bradley has more than 250 litigators – comprising nearly half of the firm – who use our firm’s 100-plus years of experience nationally and internationally, in a wide expanse of industries, to provide the premier service and value that our clients require, whether trying cases in a courtroom or negotiating settlements in a boardroom.
We approach cases strategically, providing early case assessments for clients that help direct the course of the matter from preliminary dispositive motions and settlement talks through trial and appeal, if necessary. Should a matter proceed to trial, our lawyers leverage our track record of courtroom successes nationwide, including our success in appellate proceedings, to help clients evaluate the risks of litigation and balance those risks against their specific business goals.
Bradley’s Litigation Practice Group handles matters in nearly every substantive area of law that concerns our business clients, including:
Antitrust and unfair competition
Arbitration and mediation
Class actions and mass torts
Contract disputes and business torts
ERISA and employee benefits
Government enforcement and investigations
Intellectual property and trade secrets
Labor and employment
White-collar criminal defense
Our creativity and skill in successfully handling high-stakes and complex cases are informed by our experience in litigating and arbitrating in every state, as well as every federal district and appellate court, across the United States. This deep bench of talent allows us to match our clients’ needs with the most-qualified litigation lawyers to deliver the results clients want, with the budget attention they require.
Partnering with Clients:
Our clients include a variety of large global and national corporations, regional and middle-market companies, and entrepreneurs and startups, as well as local small businesses. We seek to be partners in our clients’ successes; their objectives are our objectives.
Using technology extensively and providing skilled project management creates cost-reducing efficiencies and allows our attorneys to communicate effectively and work closely with clients in handling their most sophisticated and large-scale matters, including multidistrict and mass claim litigation.
We maintain a multifaceted ability to handle local, regional, national, and international conflicts.Many of our most significant and long-term client relationships with Fortune 500 and other international companies started when we were hired to handle litigation locally or regionally. Before long, such work often led to work as team leaders for these clients across the country and around the world. In the southeast, our lawyers’ deep roots and active involvement in local business communities have fostered the trust our clients place in us to handle their most important matters.
Depth Across Industries:
The breadth of Bradley’s litigation experience includes significant depth in a variety of large and growing industries, both nationally and globally. Some of these include:
Founded over 130 years ago, Brunini, Grantham, Grower & Hewes, PLLC is one of Mississippi’s most respected law firms. Brunini has long been recognized as Mississippi’s “go-to” law firm for significant litigation, whether the matter involves personal injury, product liability, mass torts, class actions, environmental and toxic exposure, medical or professional malpractice, commercial disputes, business torts, securities, antitrust, intellectual property, construction disputes, labor and employment, bankruptcy and creditors’ rights, insurance coverage, surety and fidelity or tax disputes.
Brunini’s reputation has evolved from its outstanding record of successful outcomes and its vigorous and thorough representation of client interests before state and federal trial and appellate courts in Mississippi and throughout the United States. Brunini attorneys have handled, some of the largest and most complex cases that have been brought in the state, and the firm is also regularly engaged to handle complex litigation matters outside of Mississippi. The firm’s litigation teams are staffed by experienced trial attorneys and are supported by qualified paralegals, legal assistants, and the most advanced litigation technology and software available.
A number of the firm’s litigators are Fellows of the American College of Trial Lawyers and members of the American Board of Trial Advocates. Many have also been recognized as Benchmark Litigation Stars and Appellate Stars, in addition to individual and firm recognition by Best Lawyers in America, Chambers USA, and Mid-South Super Lawyers.
A significant difference at Brunini, however, is the firm’s emphasis on achieving results as quickly as possible so its clients can return to focusing on their business. If traditional litigation appears unsuited to meet a client’s needs, the firm will suggest alternatives designed to achieve resolution more quickly and cost-efficiently. Brunini attorneys are experienced in alternative dispute resolution, including mediation and arbitration. Should alternate means not succeed, Brunini will draw on its considerable resources to proceed to trial from a position of strength.
