Overview

Tyler Bexley represents businesses and individuals in high-stakes litigation.

Tyler’s advocacy has achieved successful results for his clients, including significant judgments for plaintiffs, take-nothing verdicts for defendants, winning dispositive motions, and favorable settlements.

In 2020, Tyler obtained a seven-figure judgment after a contested arbitration between a real estate investor and developer. The arbitration award and judgment in favor of Tyler’s client included the full amount of requested damages and attorneys’ fees.

In 2017, with Adam Sanderson, Tyler successfully defended one of the nation’s leading providers of law enforcement video surveillance technology in a multimillion-dollar patent infringement suit. After a week-long trial in the Eastern District of Texas, the jury unanimously found in favor of Tyler’s client on every question presented, rendering a verdict of non-infringement and patent invalidity.

Tyler also has significant experience in bankruptcy, receivership, and fraudulent transfer cases. For example, Tyler secured an asset-freezing preliminary injunction in a fraudulent transfer and alter ego case in the United States District Court for the District of Nevada. Following the injunction, the defendants asked for the Nevada Supreme Court to address issues of first impression relating to the alter ego doctrine in Nevada. In 2019, Tyler argued before the Nevada Supreme Court in a certified question proceeding that resulted in a unanimous opinion in favor of his clients. Shortly thereafter, Tyler and his team obtained summary judgment of non-dischargeability in a related bankruptcy proceeding. As a result of these combined efforts, Tyler’s client reached a favorable settlement.

In another bankruptcy proceeding, Tyler won dismissal of an involuntary bankruptcy case in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of California. The dismissal was accompanied by a substantial award of attorneys’ fees to Tyler’s client. The dismissal also paved the way for a favorable settlement of related litigation in Texas.

Tyler’s recent experience also includes several high-profile cases and constitutional issues, including the following:

  • Tyler was lead counsel in a First Amendment case involving the wrongful arrest of a freelance journalist. Tyler defeated the defendants’ immunity arguments in the trial court and in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. Shortly after the Fifth Circuit rejected the defendants’ arguments, Tyler obtained a substantial settlement for his client.
  • In 2019, Tyler was part of a team led by Pete Marketos representing AT&T against false advertising claims relating to 5G technology filed by Sprint in the Southern District of New York.
  • With Pete Marketos, Tyler successfully represented the New York Attorney General in a lawsuit filed by ExxonMobil in federal court in Texas, where Exxon sought to halt the NYAG’s investigation into Exxon’s alleged climate-change cover-up.
  • Tyler represented the New York Governor in obtaining the dismissal, for lack of personal jurisdiction, of a lawsuit filed in the Western District of Texas relating to the online publication of instructions for 3D printing of firearms.
