Every day, Bailey Glasser’s commercial litigators tackle “deals gone wrong,” whether in the form of broken contracts, fractured business relationships, fraudulent transactions, or interference with existing or future agreements. We thrive on complexity and revel in untangling the knots of intricate structures in a transaction or in a business itself.


Our highest honors come when we represent a client who has been sued in a commercial case, and through litigating counterclaims, end the case with our client receiving a settlement check.

We have initiated and defended billion-dollar actions nationwide in state courts, federal courts, and before arbitrators and mediators. Our opposing counsel has included some of the largest law firms in the country and we have emerged victorious. We represent the full spectrum of business interests and industries, from solo entrepreneurs to multi-national corporations, from coal miners to fashion designers.

Bailey Glasser’s commercial lawyers bring vast experience in resolving business disputes including breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, tortious interference, fraud, fraudulent transfer actions, and numerous other federal and state statutes.

Although at Bailey Glasser “we try cases,” we also recognize that a preferred outcome may be obtained by negotiation or at an early stage in a lawsuit. Our demonstrated willingness to take cases to trial gives our clients an advantage throughout the litigation process.
