Abrams & Bayliss LLP is a corporate and business law boutique focusing on (i) high stakes litigation and (ii) transactional advice where there is a high risk of litigation or which involve complex or novel issues of Delaware law.
A&B attorneys have a proven track record of delivering extraordinary legal services on matters involving substantial economic and control-related stakes, where legal issues require innovative thinking and strong advocacy, and under severe time constraints. Unlike many firms, A&B attorneys frequently represent both plaintiffs and defendants, giving us an added measure of insight on strategic and tactical issues. We have extensive experience representing corporations, stockholders, directors, and executives in a wide range of litigation and transactions. We also have extensive experience with other business entities, including partnerships, limited partnerships, and limited liability companies. We have particular depth and experience in contests for corporate control and going-private transactions.
Many of the most prominent and prestigious law firms and practitioners in the world rely on A&B attorneys for Delaware law advice. Many business entities, both public and private, similarly look to A&B attorneys on Delaware law issues. We typically will accept a matter only if it involves a significant and substantive role. A&B frequently works in partnership with our co-counsel to accomplish client goals efficiently and effectively. We also regularly take on lead roles in litigation and transactional matters. We are happy to provide references upon request.
In 2005, Kevin G. Abrams and J. Travis Laster founded the firm, then known as Abrams & Laster LLP, after more than thirty years combined experience at Richards, Layton & Finger, one of Delaware's oldest and largest law firms. Kevin and Travis formed the firm to create a more specialized and focused platform that would have greater flexibility to represent a wide range of clients in both offensive and defensive roles. In September 2009, Travis left the firm to become a Vice Chancellor of the Delaware Court of Chancery, the nation’s preeminent business court. Immediately prior to Travis’ departure, A. Thompson Bayliss and John M. Seaman became partners of the firm, which was renamed Abrams & Bayliss LLP.
At A&B, we believe that clients and forwarding counsel want responsive lawyers who have the experience, expertise and energy to provide effective solutions to difficult, often time-sensitive problems. We are committed to exceeding expectations and providing the strongest and most capable representation available anywhere.
