Selendy Gay Elsberg’s practice is dedicated to excellence in litigation and investigations. Our partners and associates are a team of the most accomplished, lauded, and creative lawyers in the profession. By re-thinking law firm structure, operations, and culture, we have also crafted an environment for our lawyers to serve our clients’ needs with focus and efficiency. Putting our clients first includes learning their businesses to advise proactively and to be ready if crisis strikes. It also means bringing a strongly led, tightly-coordinated combination of talent and resources to each of our client’s priorities. Through critical thinking and collaboration, we offer an unmatched plaintiffs’ practice combined with a premier defense practice.

Our partners have earned industry-leading reputations by winning trials of the highest stakes in nearly every type of complex commercial litigation, arbitration, and investigation. As plaintiffs’ counsel, we have pioneered claims, and even practice areas, that recovered over $45 billion for clients while holding institutional giants accountable. As defense counsel, we have won bet-the-company cases that threatened the existence of our clients’ businesses and business models, vindicated individuals in aggressive white-collar prosecutions, and counseled clients successfully in fast-moving investigations. Because of our extensive experience, we excel at anticipating legal maneuvers and staying several moves ahead. 

Central to our success is our willingness to take cases to trial, if necessary. We have tried dozens of cases to verdict in state and federal courts across the nation and arbitrated many cases through to award, often stepping in at the last minute to handle distressed cases at trial or on appeal. Our experience brings our clients better courtroom results and also better settlements, because our adversaries have no doubt of the courtroom threat we pose.
