“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.”

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 product 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 (four of our attorneys are also MDs) and are consistently called upon to try these difficult cases 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 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  have earned accolades from The American Lawyer, Chambers & Partners, The Legal 500, and other national publications.
