Kyle Robisch is a seasoned business litigator with experience prosecuting and defending high-stakes, bet-the-company cases in federal and state courts across the country. From California to Florida, Kyle has represented plaintiffs, defendants, and intervenors in complex litigation involving multiple parties, claims, and cases. His clients run the gamut from Fortune 500 companies to public entities to individual business owners. His significant litigation experience includes pre-filing strategy analyses, drafting and answering complaints, strategic discovery management, taking and defending depositions, dispositive motion practice, and expert work. Kyle also routinely works with clients to preserve issues for appeal and, if necessary, defend or overturn decisions in federal and state courts.

Kyle regularly represents businesses and their owners in Florida state and federal courts. For example, he often prosecutes and defends cases involving breach of contract, tortious interference with business relationships, unjust enrichment, fraudulent misrepresentation, and conversion. Kyle has also litigated cases alleging defamation, breach of fiduciary duties, and violation of Florida’s Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act (FDUTPA). Above all, Kyle strives to litigate cases creatively and efficiently, using claims, motion practice, and discovery to achieve his clients’ ultimate business objectives as cost effectively as possible.

While Kyle represents clients in all manner of business disputes, he is an especially experienced environmental and land use litigator. He often counsels clients proposing high-profile projects before, during, and after litigation. For example, Kyle helped secure – and defend –permits for a state’s first-ever copper-nickel-platinum mine, prosecuted novel constitutional and statutory claims against state elected officials blocking development of one of the nation’s largest proposed energy export terminals, and advised a major freight railroad on redevelopment of historically and environmentally sensitive infrastructure. Many of his clients challenge or defend high-value water permits, including Clean Water Act (CWA) section 401 certifications and National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permits.

While clients go to Kyle for his litigation experience, they also value his practical problem-solving approach. Outside the courtroom, he counsels clients on pre-permitting and pre-litigation strategy, provides public relations and governmental affairs advice, and works with regulators to move projects forward. He has even helped clients draft proposed federal and state legislation. Simply put, Kyle is committed to helping clients navigate their full suite of public relations, governmental affairs, and litigation problems.

Before joining Bradley, Kyle practiced in Washington, D.C. He began his legal career as a law clerk to the Hon. G. Kendall Sharp of the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida. During his clerkship, he drafted numerous dispositive orders and assisted the judge through all phases of civil and criminal trials and hearings.

Kyle recently served two terms as co-chair of the American Bar Association's Water Resources Committee. He has won several awards for his writing on the role of agency discretion in the administration of federal environmental law.
