The clients who seek out the business and civil litigation firm Brophy & Bland are wide-ranging: individuals, families, small and large businesses, local and national companies, former senior government officials, lawyers, law professors, construction companies, real estate professionals, franchisors and franchisees and business executives, to name a few. What they all have in common, though, is the need for confident and experienced legal counsel.

“Our firm is skilled at empowering our clients to make informed decisions and be confident in their legal representation,” says co-founder and owner Joseph F. Brophy, who has been selected for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America® since 2013 for Commercial Litigation. “With every client, we gain a deep understanding of their legal issues and business operations, allowing us to provide them with well-informed and strategic legal solutions.”

"We have consistently demonstrated our ability to secure wins for our clients, regardless of whether they are plaintiffs or defendants in a matter."

Indeed, Brophy has forged enduring relationships with his clients by becoming fully immersed in their businesses, deals and lawsuits. Clients across the country and internationally have come to rely on his advice, turning to Brophy & Bland for assistance on various issues, including business divorces, breach of contract actions, commercial property and development disputes, insurance actions, professional malpractice claims, construction disputes, intellectual property disputes and IP and cyber-litigation.

“We have consistently demonstrated our ability to provide a wide array of clients highly competent representation and to secure wins on their behalf, inside and outside the courtroom.” In the past few years, Brophy secured a substantial eight-figure settlement in Arizona federal court, as well as wins for clients across Texas, as well as in Alabama, Pennsylvania, New York and North Carolina. Moreover, Brophy has counseled clients in connection with significant business transactions across more than a dozen states.

Brophy & Bland also is diligent about remaining abreast of the latest developments in the law, and Brophy has continued to expand and grow the firm to ensure his clientele have access to a premier team of litigators. For example, after recently joining the firm, Charles “Charlie” Bland has become a name partner in the practice, enhancing its capacity to provide dynamic and forward-looking representation.

“Charlie is a fantastic, bright young lawyer with great instincts and sound judgment. He is very calculated in how he approaches a case, and we share a strong work ethic and a focus on thorough preparation. We also both take great pride in our results, and clients whose bottom line or future viability is at stake appreciate our confidence and ability to get the job done.
