Connecticut business litigators

O’Sullivan McCormack Jensen & Bliss is a team of business litigators dedicated to resolving complex legal disputes. We pride ourselves as a small firm that “does what the big firms do.” We handle sophisticated subject matter, we generate quality work product, and we deliver impressive results. And we do so in the setting of a boutique law firm, where we provide individualized attention to our clients, at very competitive rates.

We are attorneys and counsellors at law, and we take both of those roles seriously. As attorneys, we are recognized for our skills, such as knowing the law and the rules, writing a persuasive brief, delivering a winning argument, and trying a successful case. As counselors, we are often called upon to intervene in a difficult situation before litigation becomes inevitable. We strive to apply mature and reasoned judgment to every matter, and guide the client to a successful outcome. But we believe our clients are well served when their attorney negotiators have the knowledge and skill to pivot to litigation if that is required.

Our cases cover a wide array of subject matter:

  • We handle disputes between the buyers and sellers of goods and services, and cases involving a broad spectrum of other legal relationships.
  • We have significant experience representing insurance policyholders in coverage disputes with insurance companies.
  • We represent employers, and sometimes employees, in connection with employment disputes.
  • We litigate business tort cases, such as unfair trade practices, unfair competition, and the misappropriation of trade secrets and computer data.
  • We represent creditors, and sometimes debtors, in the realm of creditors’ rights.
  • We frequently handle “business divorce” matters, representing one or more co-owners of a closely held business against others.
  • We litigate commercial real estate cases, including commercial lease disputes and cases arising from failed and breached real estate transactions.

We also provide quality representation in more specialized areas. We defend manufacturers against high-stakes product liability claims, having obtained verdicts and judgments on behalf of product manufacturers in various industries. We represent regulated entities in administrative proceedings, and in subsequent appeals.

O’Sullivan McCormack Jensen & Bliss handles matters in and around Hartford, Middletown, New Haven, and all other parts of Connecticut. We litigate cases in the state and federal trial courts and appellate courts. We handle regulatory proceedings before state and self-regulatory agencies, including the Connecticut Public Utilities Regulatory Authority, Connecticut Insurance Department, Connecticut Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities, the Connecticut Department of Banking and FINRA. A number of our attorneys are also admitted and represent clients in Massachusetts courts.
