Benjamin A. Webster
Mr. Webster is a trial lawyer and co-managing partner of the Morgan & Morgan Business Trial Group, who specializes in handling complex business litigation on a contingency fee basis. Over his career, he has seen many individuals and businesses with significant claims unable to obtain access to the civil justice system or properly pursue their claims due to the inability to pay the attorneys’ fees required by the traditional hourly fee model.
At Morgan & Morgan, Mr. Webster provides representation to clients involved in business disputes on a contingency fee (success fee) model, which allows his clients to obtain the best and most efficient results possible, regardless of their financial position. Using the success fee model, he has recovered tens of millions of dollars for his clients through jury verdicts and settlements. In particular, Mr. Webster has first-chaired several trials and obtained a number of significant jury verdicts for his business clients.
Mr. Webster’s practice is focused on different types of complex business cases, including those involving business torts, contract disputes, partnership disputes, professional malpractice, real estate related litigation, construction defect or payment disputes, investor fraud, and others. He has extensive experience litigating these and other types of complex cases from inception through trial and verdict, in several state and federal trial courts, as well as in the Florida appellate courts and in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit.
Prior to joining Morgan & Morgan, P.A., Benjamin practiced for several years in the national law firm of Baker & Hostetler, LLP. Benjamin has been named a “Rising Star” by Florida Super Lawyers magazine, an annual publication that recognizes the top 2.5% of the state’s young lawyers, every year from 2013 to 2020. Benjamin has also been named as one of “Florida’s Legal Elite” by Florida Trend on multiple occasions – a designation awarded to attorneys by their peers, which is given to less than 2% of attorneys in the state of Florida.
