Recognized by Chambers USA 2018 as an “accomplished commercial litigator” for his innovative and strategic litigation techniques, Glen focuses his trial practice on complex business, commercial, real estate, land use and probate litigation matters, “consistently” generating results that “exceed expectations.”

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 repeatedly in commercial litigation and noted in Who’s Who Legal: Litigation as “one of the US’s leading trial lawyers,” Glen has obtained 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 numerous international arbitration awards reaching as high as $50 million.

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 Waldman Barnett won a jury verdict of $26 million, in a protracted case by nearby homeowners against the development of Privé at Island Estates in Aventura’s Dumfoundling Bay, which opened in 2018.

Similarly, as reported by The Miami Herald, Glen 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 has been a “Top-Rated Business Litigation Attorney,” according to Super Lawyers, since 2006. He is a fellow of the Litigation Counsel of America and a member of the American Board of Trial Advocates, ABOTA.
