If you think about the Mets, you will likely think of the famous New York baseball team. But for an expanding group of plaintiffs lawyers, it envisions an emerging Puerto Rican basketball team originally founded in 1935, dissolved in 2015, but revived in 2019. One of the team’s owners enabling the jump start is Marc D. Grossman, who is also a senior partner at the plaintiffs firm Milberg Coleman Bryson Phillips Grossman.

Puerto Rico’s recent Mets revival is a direct result of a perhaps unlikely phenomenon— the influx of plaintiffs firms to the island. Over the last few years, more and more firms have moved their offices, or large parts thereof, to this U.S. territory. It’s a trend that was exacerbated during the pandemic.
