Blank Rome Partner Michelle M. Gervais has been named to America’s Top 100 High Stakes Litigators, an annual directory that recognizes the nation’s most exceptional attorneys in high value, high stakes litigation matters.

To be considered for selection to America’s Top 100 High Stakes Litigators®, an attorney must have litigated (for either plaintiff or defendant) a matter with the fate of a business worth at least two million dollars at stake. Thereafter, candidates are carefully screened through comprehensive advanced data analytics based on a broad array of criteria, including the candidate’s professional experience, litigation experience, significant business litigation case results, representative high stakes matters, peer reputation, and community impact in order to rank the candidates throughout the state. With these standards, less than one-half percent of active attorneys in the United States receive the honor each year, making this honor the most exclusive and elite level of high stakes litigators in the community.

At Blank Rome, Michelle counsels high-profile individuals, athletes, and celebrities, as well as businesses and financial institutions, in the areas of sports and entertainment, matrimonial and domestic relations, commercial and business litigation, and consumer finance. She is a member of the Sports Lawyers Association, serves as an executive board member for Women in Sports and Events Tampa Bay, and is active in numerous organizations in her community.

Michelle recently discussed her litigation practice in her article, My Winning Playbook: Fading into the Fix, featured in the 2021 edition of The Playbook, the premier annual magazine for NFL THREAD, a private social network for NFL spouses (current and former) and mothers and daughters of former and current NFL players and coaches.
