Practice/Organization Description

Carlton Fields Jorden Burt serves business clients in key industries across the country and around the globe. Through our core practices, we help our clients grow their businesses and protect their vital interests.

Our national and international litigation teams are well equipped to handle the most complex business trials, arbitrations, and appeals. We have developed especially deep experience in the defense of class actions and mass actions, white collar representation, high-stakes business litigation, and government investigations. We have tried more than 1,500 cases to judgment or verdict and defended several hundred class actions across the country. We are one of only a handful of firms that have actually tried major class action cases. In the life insurance and financial product liability areas, alone, our financial services industry attorneys have handled more than 300 class actions.

The cases we handle cut across every subject area, including consumer and business fraud, Foreign Corrupt Practice Act enforcement, contracts, shareholder disputes, antitrust, insurance, securities, products liability, construction, real estate, creditors’ rights and bankruptcy, labor and employment, intellectual property, health care, telecommunications, energy, constitutional claims, international and domestic arbitration, and federal and state governmental disputes.

Our firm also advises clients on sophisticated business transactions across a range of issues and industries. With a strong presence in New York, Washington D.C., and Miami, we offer focused guidance on domestic and international matters and handle a wide variety of transactions for clients throughout the country and internationally. We counsel them on matters related to mergers and acquisitions, securities, tax planning, and ERISA, and provide state regulatory counseling to clients in the life insurance and financial services sectors, the energy sector, and other key industries.

We also cater to high-growth clients, including technology-based companies, advising them on capital formation, debt financing, corporate governance and transactions, mergers and acquisitions, securities compliance and disclosures, tax planning, and cyber-security concerns. Additionally, we offer our business clients the guidance they need to identify and protect their tangible and intangible assets, including intellectual property, and to manage their immigration and labor and employment issues. We also handle all phases of real property site acquisition and disposition, financing, permitting, and development.

Our government consultants have extensive expertise dealing with federal and state regulators, legislative bodies, and executive agencies on a wide range of issues, including insurance and tort reform, health care, financial regulation, government investigations, and enforcement actions.
