Whether corporations, other kinds of entities, or individuals, earning our clients’ ongoing satisfaction requires Bilzin Sumberg lawyers and staff to tailor our services to each client’s individual needs and preferences.
Staying true to our founders’ objectives requires us to remember at all times the inspiration for Bilzin Sumberg’s creation — to help our clients achieve their most important objectives. And that achievement has been accelerated by a steadfast commitment to the principle that informs our invitation to clients, prospects, and recruits alike to “judge us by the company we keep.”
In order to maintain a reputation for market leadership, whether we’re orchestrating a wide range of sophisticated deals, resolving mission-critical disputes, assisting clients with important governmental negotiations, or helping them with wide-ranging corporate and personal matters, such as international tax and wealth-management planning, we recruit peerless talent. And we know that by assembling an extraordinary cohort of lawyers and other business professionals, we are able to attract informed clients who appreciate and demand legal and business excellence.
Today, we are proud to be judged by the individuals and entities that choose us as their counsel as well as by our own Bilzin Sumberg colleagues. In the past decade, our firm has grown from a local legend into a national powerhouse of professionals with a diverse array of specialized backgrounds.
Eschewing growth for its own sake, we have chosen to grow in concert with our clients’ needs—to be nimble instead of large. And because we believe wholeheartedly that lawyers who work closely together to build an enduring culture—one based on shared knowledge and respect—are best able to appreciate and exceed their clients’ expectations, we have developed a business model that is an expression of our commitment to client service: one office housing a carefully curated team of lawyers skilled at collaboration and ready and able to serve clients wherever and whenever needed. As a result, we maintain our home base in Miami, and let technology and transportation connect us with clients all over the United States and throughout the world.
We will continue to pay close attention to the issues affecting our clients’ businesses and industries, and we will evolve in ways that anticipate and fulfill their requirements. Whether you seek a special relationship with your outside counsel or a new platform for your practice, we invite you to keep company with a host of other discerning clients and a team of Bilzin Sumberg professionals ready to help you realize your most important goals.
Bilzin Sumberg's LPM model focuses on up-front planning and budgeting, disciplined team management and client debriefing. We develop a road map for engagements that is reviewed with the client, so that each stage of the project is completely transparent. We approach client representation with a clear understanding of client business goals, as well as an understanding of the industries in which our clients compete, enabling us to provide value to each client.
Our LPM program has received significant industry recognition as a result of our deep commitment to widespread adoption of LPM throughout the firm. Over 50 percent of our partners have been trained by industry experts and use LPM best practices - guides, templates, checklists, processes and technologies - to improve predictability, accountability, communication and transparency.
Our firm uses leading LPM software platforms that utilize top knowledge management techniques and industry best practices to increase the efficiency of our service delivery and control costs. Most importantly, successful project management encourages frequent, transparent communication with clients.
For disputes, it means that you have greater control of the process and the outcome.
For transactions, it means realistic budgets, fewer surprises and a smoother journey to the closing.
For all matters, it means candid post-completion assessments and the opportunity for real process improvement.
We sought to answer that question by creating Bilzin Sumberg Cares, a community involvement program that provides our attorneys, staff and their families with opportunities to work together to benefit charitable organizations in the South Florida community.
Now in its ninth year, Bilzin Sumberg Cares has partnered with organizations including Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America, the Miami-Dade Special Olympics, Voices for Children Foundation, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Miami, United Way of Miami-Dade, and numerous other non-profit organizations. Our recent projects have included painting, landscaping and building new outdoor seating at Scott Lake Elementary, a Montessori magnet school in Miami Gardens, landscaping at Norwood Elementary school in Miami Gardens, painting the TACOLCY community center in Miami’s Liberty City, sponsoring a book bag drive at Southside Elementary school in support of United Way’s Early Literacy campaign, and assisting track and field athletes during the Miami-Dade Special Olympics. In June of 2016 the Miami-Dade School Board presented Bilzin Sumberg with a proclamation for our work at Scott Lake Elementary school to recognize the commitment of our attorneys, staff and their families to supporting the local community.
Chaired by Corporate & Tax partner Marshall Pasternack, Bilzin Sumberg Cares underscores our commitment to shaping more than just the skyline of our community.
