Recognized by Chambers USA as a leading Florida lawyer for his innovative and thorough litigation techniques, Glen focuses his trial practice on complex business, commercial, real estate, land use and probate litigation matters throughout the United States.

With more than 30 years of experience, he has tried both jury and non-jury cases with disputes in a wide variety of areas, including contracts, fraud, fraudulent transfers, business partnerships, land use, wills, construction, real estate, insurance, trademark infringement and banking. He also represents and advises a number of businesses about their contractual relationships, internal controls and procedures, and other legal and strategic decisions.

Ranked by Chambers USA 2017 in commercial litigation and listed in Who’s Who Legal: Litigation 2015, Glen has obtained numerous jury verdict awards in the seven- and eight-figure range in commercial and real-estate matters, and successfully defended claims of equal size. He has had similar success in the area of real estate and land use, and in probate courts. Likewise, he has secured a number of international arbitration awards reaching as high as $50 million.

Over the past year, Glen and his litigation group have received local and national recognition from both their peers and respected media for their work. For example, Glen was featured in The Wall Street Journal for his representation of Tropicana Condominium, and Heller Waldman was inducted into the 2015 Daily Business Review Florida Verdicts Hall of Fame for a jury verdict of $21 million, including punitive damages, won by Glen and his litigation group.

Similarly, as reported by The Miami Herald, he led a successful effort to stymie developers who were intent on changing the landscape of the Grove Isle community located in Coconut Grove, Florida. He is currently leading the litigation team fighting to achieve the development of Privé on Williams Island against significant opposition in multiple related cases.
