Who We Are
“Combines ‘brilliant intellect with sound common sense’.”
“They are very strategic, thorough, and are great at mastering the science.”
A new model
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 clients’ success.
Goldman Ismail specializes in large-scale cases: major products liability, mass tort, intellectual property, antitrust, and other high-stakes commercial litigation for large US and multinational companies. We are well known for our command of complex scientific and technical issues (five of our attorneys are also MDs), and we are consistently called on to try cases involving these difficult issues across the country before judges, juries, and arbitrators.
Unlike most firms, we use a results-based compensation system that promotes efficiency, provides predictability of litigation costs, and directly aligns our incentives with those of our clients.
Our clients include some of the world’s preeminent Fortune Global 500 corporations. Our efforts on their behalf have earned accolades from The American Lawyer, Chambers & Partners, The Legal 500, and other national publications.
“Opposing counsel described litigating against Goldman Ismail ‘like a trip to the dentist,’ calling the lawyers “very professional, very thorough, and they use all the tools in the toolbox.”
