The firm’s areas of litigation include product liability, medical liability, professional liability, employment disputes, commercial disputes, business torts, intellectual property, transportation, construction, premises liability, inland marine, personal injury defense, admiralty, environmental claims, toxic torts, mass tort litigation and insurance coverage. The firm is A.V. rated by Martindale-Hubbell, is listed in Best’s Directory of Recommended Insurance Attorneys, included in the prestigious Chambers and Partners, publishers of The Chambers Guides, and is consistently rated by the South Florida Legal Guide and Florida Trend Magazine as one of the top law firms in South Florida.

Clarke Silverglate was formed in 1993 by Mercer K. (“Bud”) Clarke, formerly a Partner with the Miami office of Kelley Drye & Warren, and with its Miami predecessor, Smathers & Thompson, and by Spencer H. Silverglate, formerly an attorney with Kelley Drye & Warren.

The firm’s goal is to achieve the best possible results for clients at a fair cost. Our Partners have big firm practice experience but charge a small firm price. Our approach to case management begins with an early, aggressive, thorough investigation of the facts and any unique legal principles which may apply to make an informed and realistic evaluation of the possibility of success at trial, the verdict exposure and the cost of litigating. When requested, a litigation plan and case budget is prepared. Evaluations are changed only when warranted by significant subsequent case developments.

As part of the evaluation process, we strive to determine as soon as possible whether a case should be settled or tried. For those cases which our clients elect to try, we pledge unwavering commitment to litigate the case to verdict and, if necessary, beyond. We will not falter on the courthouse steps.
