BFKN is pleased to announce the additions of Ian P. Flanagan and Marlow Svatek to the Litigation Group.

Ian concentrates his practice in commercial litigation, helping clients achieve favorable outcomes throughout all phases of litigation, up to and including trial. Ian also works on a wide range of commercial litigation matters, including luxury brand, automotive, and real estate matters. He has extensive experience in federal courts, state courts, and arbitral forums. In his judicial clerkships, he drafted memoranda, opinions, and orders at the appellate and trial court levels.

Marlow is a creative and versatile attorney who leverages her prior experience clerking for federal judges at both the trial and appellate court levels to craft winning arguments and develop litigation strategies that advance her clients’ interests at every stage of litigation. Marlow’s practice also spans a variety of substantive areas, including consumer class actions, business disputes, and securities and shareholder derivative matters. Marlow has extensive experience drafting dispositive motions and appellate briefs, managing discovery, taking depositions, preparing fact and expert witnesses for deposition and trial, and trying cases in court and before arbitration tribunals.

“We are excited to welcome Ian and Marlow to our Litigation Group. They are experienced associates with a deep background in complex commercial litigation, including class actions, business ownership matters, and real estate disputes, who come to us with significant case management, discovery, and trial experience. Ian and Marlow are great additions to our growing team of top-notch litigators.” — Matthew A. Bills, Co-Chair, Litigation Group

Litigation Group

Our firm has assembled a group of highly skilled trial lawyers – seasoned partners and well-trained associates – who represent clients both forcefully and efficiently. Unlike some litigators, who spend years engaging in expensive discovery only to recommend settlement on the eve of trial, we are always ready to try cases when necessary, but strive to achieve business resolutions early and economically when appropriate.
