Sbaiti & Company is proud to announce Brad J. Robinson and Michał Zapendowski have been elevated to Partners of the firm. Additionally, Jonathan Bridges recently joined the firm as a Partner.

Brad Robinson handles complex commercial litigation and personal injury matters. He has indepth experience in a variety of litigation contexts, having served as national and regional counsel for various product manufacturers and sellers in mass tort litigation, and handling claims on behalf of both plaintiffs and defendants for wrongful death, traumatic brain injury, catastrophic injury, fraud, embezzlement, breach of contract, and property damage. Brad received his law degree from Baylor University School of Law and is an active member of the Bar and his community.

“Sbaiti & Company is agile in ways other firms simply are not. Where other firms use the same, well-worn template for every case, we tailor our representation and strategy to best fit the needs of each of our clients. Mazin Sbaiti embraces creativity and allows us to aggressively and zealously represent our clients how it best serves their individual circumstances. My partners and colleagues are like my family, and we rely on each other for advice and strategy as we conquer new challenges. Our diverse litigation backgrounds and experiences empower us to perform like a much larger firm. And the small firm environment offers me greater access to my clients, allowing me to learn about all aspects of their businesses and legal needs, which gives me the opportunity to provide the most comprehensive and effective representation possible. “~ Brad J. Robinson

Michał Zapendowski is a native of Warsaw, Poland and fluent in four languages – English, Spanish, French and Polish. Michał’s practice areas are focused on complex commercial litigation, legal malpractice and complex fraud and tax disputes. Michał has represented both plaintiffs and defendants in high-stakes disputes in the courts of Texas, California, Delaware, New York and roughly half a dozen other jurisdictions across the United States and in U.S. territories. Michal earned his J.D. at Columbia University School of Law.

“I love the flexibility that being at a litigation boutique offers, as opposed to being at a large law firm. Most of the big law firms that we oppose in our cases are frequently formulaic about the way they approach each dispute – checking off the boxes, going through the same steps in every case. Often, it seems like those steps primarily end up inflating their clients’ legal bills without advancing the ball in their clients’ favor. At Sbaiti & Co., I feel like I’m free to be as creative and aggressive as necessary to win each case in the smartest and most efficient way possible. This is what I imagined myself doing when I went to law school.” ~ Michał Zapendowski

Jonathan Bridges has reunited with Mazin Sbaiti after first working together at Susman Godfrey. Prior to joining Sbaiti & Company, Jonathan was on the faculty of the newly launched University of North Texas at Dallas College of Law since 2015. With over two decades of highstakes commercial litigation experience involving real estate, oil and gas interests, coal mining, power plants, zoning, eminent domain, patents, copyrights, and movie theater chains, Jonathan adds tremendous depth and breadth to the Sbaiti team. He received his J.D. from Notre Dame Law School, where he served as Editor-in-Chief of the Notre Dame Law Review.

“I worked with Mazin for several years at Susman Godfrey. The chance to do so again was too good to turn down.” ~ Jonathan Bridges

“As our firm has grown, so too has the involvement of key members of our team. Both Brad and Michal have contributed greatly to our success and will be instrumental in leading our firm through the next growth phase. I have known Jonathan since our days at Susman Godfrey and have admired his success in the courtroom and classroom over the years. Sbaiti & Company is stronger today with him on our team. “~ Mazin A. Sbaiti
