Who We Are

With a national practice focused exclusively on litigation, Goldman Ismail is a firm of experienced trial lawyers with a proven track record of success in high stakes litigation. Overcoming the many strategic challenges that arise in complex cases requires lawyers who have been there before. That’s why clients turn to us.

After successful careers as partners at Bartlit Beck and Fulbright & Jaworski, we founded Goldman Ismail because we believed we could achieve better results for our clients by combining our talents in one firm. Ours is a rare chemistry, and our ability to collaborate as a team is a key ingredient in our client’s success.

Goldman Ismail attorneys have served as national trial counsel, leaders of expert witness teams, senior in-house counsel and designers of global resolution programs, including multi-billion dollar settlements that have received national attention.

Unlike most firms, we use a results-based compensation system that promotes efficiency, provides predictability of litigation costs, and increases the likelihood of success for our clients.

Our clients include some of the world's preeminent Fortune Global 500 corporations based here and abroad. Our efforts on their behalf, encompassing mass tort, class action, securities, intellectual property and professional liability litigation, have earned accolades from The American Lawyer, Chambers & Partners, The Legal 500, and other national publications.
