About Bilzin Sumberg Baena Price & Axelrod LLP


Miami-based Bilzin Sumberg is a commercial firm best known for its real estate, corporate and litigation work. The firm is also strong in the restructuring and bankruptcy, government relations and land development, eminent domain litigation and M&A arenas.

A Top Trial Team

Since its founding in 1998, the firm has developed new areas of expertise, such as public-private partnerships and environmental and, largely through hiring, increased its presence in the complex commercial litigation arena-earlier this year, the firm acquired a top trial team from Hunton & Williams, including renowned litigator Marty Steinberg. The department represents manufacturers, insurers, drug companies and investors in class action lawsuits, pursues securities litigation, works with technology and manufacturing entities in intellectual property disputes, and advises clients struggling to win insurance coverage claims. Another of the firm's core practice areas, corporate and tax, focuses on mergers and acquisitions of public and private companies, including joint ventures, buyouts and reorganizations.

Business without Boundaries

As the Miami market rebounds, the firm is at the forefront of South Florida's development. Its attorneys are deeply integrated into Miami's business, legal and government communities, handling inbound investment by foreign investors from Latin America and international arbitrations involving Latin America. Many of the firm's attorneys are fluent in Spanish or Portuguese.

Bilzin Sumberg is a go-to law firm for Miami-related matters, but its work is also national and international in scope; the firm's multi-disciplinary international team represents clients in transactions and disputes across state lines and abroad. Among the firm's blue chip clients are Ryder, Carnival, Bacardi, Rialto, Lennar, and AnsaldoBreda.
