Philip Bledsoe is a trial lawyer. But he knows that litigation, much less a trial, is rarely a client’s first choice, and in many cases settlement is the best and most appropriate option. Phil believes that handling a lawsuit is not an exercise in academic game theory; it calls for collaborative and practical problem solving, and a nuanced evaluation of the risk present in a dispute. Phil has guided clients through many difficult challenges in his 50+ completed trials and arbitrations, and his 30+ years of deep commercial litigation experience brings substance and practical judgment to the goal of solving client problems.
Disputes about real estate development, financial services and banking form the core of Phil’s broad experience. His substantive legal experience includes class actions, fiduciary duty matters, antitrust, contract and fraud claims. He has worked with publicly traded companies and many closely held businesses (both large and small). That range has included both local and multinational real estate companies and developers, community banks, organic food companies and national distributors and sellers of goods. His substantial experience is highlighted more fully in the listed key matters.
