Our litigation team is comprised of skilled and experienced advocates with an unparalleled reputation as trial lawyers. However, trial is only one highly visible part of the litigation process. At MBK, we work with our clients to identify litigation objectives early and we remain by their side in the pursuit of justice, re-evaluating strategy at every step.
We aim to help clients minimize their risk and maximize their control. Our attorneys immediately engage with clients to manage risk at the earliest stages of a dispute and advocate strategically in preliminary discussions and settlement negotiations. Our reputation for going to trial and our success as accomplished litigators put our clients in a strong negotiating position at every stage of a dispute. At trial, our team is professional, persuasive, and powerful. We work efficiently, drawing on the different skill sets and experience of each member of our team as well as forensic and other experts. We have successfully advocated in state and federal courts, arbitrations, mediations, administrative proceedings, investigative proceedings and before the Judicial Conduct Board, the Pennsylvania Disciplinary Board, the Pennsylvania State Employees’ Retirement Board, the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission, the Pennsylvania Board of Property, the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Office of Open Records, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority and the United States Tax Court.
Our approach to litigation at MBK is practical and comprehensive. We recognize that a successful outcome must take into account the immediate and long-term effects on the client’s business, reputation, and personal relationships. We represent sophisticated clients with complex problems, including partnerships, for-profit and non-profit entities, healthcare institutions, insurance companies, banks, employers, and individuals who are executives, elected officials, government employees, judges, and other professionals.

"The MBK team worked together seamlessly resulting in an efficient and well-coordinated approach."—Benjamin Shein, Esq.
I unqualifiedly recommend Dan Brier and the MBK commercial litigation team. Over the course of several years of litigation, I was comforted by the knowledge that I had truly engaged a legal “dream team".
MBK approached my defense in a methodical, strategic and proactive manner. They quickly gained an understanding of the facts, legal issues and anticipated the challenges involved at every turn.
Their professionalism in dealing with co-counsel as well as opposing counsel is a huge asset to their representation. The team worked together seamlessly resulting in an efficient and well-coordinated approach.
Their calm, informed, personal and professional demeanor is extremely comforting. They actually care about you as a person and as a business entity, not just as a litigant.
When your hard-earned reputation and assets are on the line, MBK should be your “go to” legal team!
