Attorney Clay Townsend and the Morgan & Morgan Business Trial Group

Orlando attorney Clay M. Townsend has a long history of successfully guiding clients through commercial and personal injury litigation. Clay Townsend and Morgan & Morgan can assist in a wide variety of legal matters including:

Commercial Litigation

Commercial litigation is an area of law concerning legal disputes involving businesses or companies. Disputes are often about financial and property issues as well as contract disagreements. An attorney who helps businesses and other related parties in commercial litigation is a business lawyer. The driving force behind commercial litigation is to try to settle disputes as they arise without heading to court. One area in commercial litigation that attorneys handle is real estate sales involving land acquisitions and company mergers. Often, when a company is planning to buy out another company, the company that is being purchased may have financial issues. A commercial attorney will help with the merger by reviewing stock sales, negotiating employee contracts and making sure the sale adheres to legal guidelines.

Entertainment Law

Entertainment law or media law is a term for a mix of more traditional categories of law with a focus on providing legal services to the entertainment industry. The principal areas of Entertainment Law overlap substantially with the well-known and conventional field of intellectual property law. But generally speaking the practice of entertainment law often involves questions of employment law, labor law, immigration, securities law, security interests, agency, intellectual property (especially trademarks, copyright, and the so-called “Right of Publicity”), and insurance law.

Investment Fraud

Morgan & Morgan will handle Investment Fraud. because we know investment fraud can affect anyone, at any time, no matter what the size of the financial involvement is. People investing their money with their best interests in mind should receive justice when investment fraud has occurred. Securities laws exist to protect investors from investment fraud and we can help if you have been victimized.

Personal Injury

Morgan and Morgan is a Personal Injury / General Negligence (P/I) Law Firm. We handle claims arising out of motor vehicle accidents such as: car accidents, motorcycle accidents, school bus related injuries, and truck accidents. However, this is not the only area of P/I we cover. We handle cases of slip and falls, trip and falls, dog bites, construction site accidents, and premises liability.

Medical Malpractice

In cases of Medical Malpractice we take-on claims involving cardiology, surgical negligence, obstetrics or birth injuries, emergency medicine, family practice, neurology and neurosurgery, pediatrics, gynecology, and the failure to diagnose cancer.

Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect

For many families Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect is still a very real issue. Cases involving injuries and deaths in nursing homes, adult congregate living facilities, assisted care facilities, and rehabilitation hospitals, are all areas we cover. Most claims brought about in Nursing Home Abuse or Neglect typically involve death, physical abuse, malnutrition, infection, and/or pressure sores.

Wrongful Death

Commonly misconstrued with Medical Malpractice, Wrongful Death cases result in death from misconduct on the part of another person or company. Our Firm takes an array of wrongful death situations/cases, including work-related accidents, car accidents, plane or aviation accidents, and sports related accidents.

Workers Compensation

In cases of injuries which occur on the job or Workers Compensation Cases, our firm will look into many of these matters. Some of the cases involving workplace injuries may include wage loss, permanent and partial disability, and both past and future medical claims.

Social Security

We also assist in claims that would be listed outside of the “Personal Injury Area.” One are is Social Security cases in which we assist those looking for help with the Social Security Administration. Our clients come to us for such assistance when their benefits have been wrongfully denied, reduced or terminated.

Insurance Dispute Claims

We have an office here at M&M devoted to Insurance Dispute claims, claims which have been denied by a client’s insurance company. We deal with claims including life, health, disability and property insurance. The firm also handles Personal Injury Protection claims for both the insured and providers, as well as handling both first and third party insurance bad faith claims.

Collection Harassment

We have an entire team dedicated to Collection Harassment here at Morgan and Morgan. This office is devoted to helping those who are being harassed by debt and bill collectors. If collectors are calling constantly, sending threatening letters, or trying to use “strong arm tactics,” you may have a case.

Product Liability

Product Liability actions, including vehicle defects, industrial equipment failures, and medical device failures also fall within our general practice areas.

Class Action

We handle many Class Action or Mass Tort Claims including: Guidant Pacemaker, Rezulin, Propulsid, Trasylol, Accutane, Prempro, Ephedra, Neurontin, Phenylproenolamine (PPA), and more throughout the country

Labor and Employment

In dealing with Labor and Employment Claims we represent employees in claims against their employers for job related discriminatory practices, unsafe work environments, and other unfair labor practices. Recently we added a new addition to our Practice field dedicated to unpaid wage claims. If you have not been paid overtime owed or are being denied your final paycheck, you may have a claim.

Toxic Mold

Toxic Mold Contamination Cases stem from people who have suffered health problems relating to what is known as “sick building syndrome.” Occupants of a “sick building” experienced acute health and comfort effects but no specific illness or cause can be identified.


Morgan & Morgan’s litigation group focuses on litigating Sinkhole Cases, which generally fall into one of two categories.

Maritime & Admiralty

Injuries and accidents are not just confined to solid ground. Our Maritime & Admiralty Office is here for just such a reason. Should a personal injury claim occur on or near the sea, we can look into claims on behalf of Seaman, Crewmen, Longshoremen and Boaters. Also, we represent clients regarding Jones Act claims, Recreational Boater claims, and Cruise ship claims, be they passenger or crew, included but not limited to sexual assaults.
