Firm Details

EXPERIENCE. RESPONSIVENESS. RESULTS. The benchmark of Martin Clearwater & Bell LLP’s defense strategy is evident in the fact that the firm has more partners selected by its peers as “Best Lawyers in America®,” New York area, than any other firm in its field. The firm’s roots date to 1912 and it has the distinction of being one of the oldest and largest boutique litigation and appellate firms emphasizing all areas of professional liability, medical and healthcare related litigation.

What truly sets MCB apart from its competition, besides tenure in the field, is the stability and experience of its highly specialized group of trial lawyers. As a result of its commitment to excellence, MCB has grown steadily over the years, from a dozen lawyers with three partners in the mid-1970s to nearly 100 attorneys, including 34 partners. The firm offers risk management and prevention services, but predominantly handles trials and appeals of issues relating to all areas of professional liability, product and pharmaceutical liability, professional credentials and discipline, insurance coverage, and employment law. Further, MC&B serves as lead defense counsel in multiple national mass tort/pharmaceutical litigations. The firm’s employment and labor practice group is headed by a prominent employment partner,who was formerly the lead partner of the NY-NJ employment practice of a national law firm.

MCB’S results-oriented approach and uncompromising quality are the reasons many of its clients have continued to rely on the firm’s legal talent for decades. The firm publishes a quarterly newsletter, and frequently hosts client education seminars, including CLE programs and risk management lectures for various groups. MCB’s continued dynamic growth is evident by the opening of an office in Stamford, Connecticut, the firm’s sixth office. The firm is headquartered in Manhattan, with offices in East Meadow, White Plains, Newark, NJ, Rochester, NY and Stamford, CT.

To best serve its clients and be most efficient in the delivery of legal services, MCB has made sound investments in advanced technology and communications equipment that assure efficient document management and secure access from wherever the firm’s lawyers require technical support. These systems are complemented by billing, research, litigation support
and practice-specific applications.
