Charles X. Gormally is Chair of the Litigation Practice Group of Brach Eichler L.L.C.
and a Member of the firm‟s Employment Services Practice Group. The New Jersey
Supreme Court has acknowledged his commitment as a trial attorney by designating him
as a Certified Civil Trial Attorney. Over the past 25 years, Mr. Gormally has developed a
proficiency in counseling clients with complex business matters, challenges to
governmental regulation, contract disputes and tort actions. Mr. Gormally has
successfully tried jury and bench trial cases in the federal and state courts, as well as
arbitration matters before American Arbitration Association tribunals.

His recent successes include in private sector matters:

   A successful resolution of a class action claim in the Superior Court of New Jersey,
    Middlesex County, against a high-profile multifamily property owner brought by
    current and former tenants alleging consumer fraud, breach of contract and
    entitlement to punitive damages.

    resulting in a successful defense of a claim for recovery of $20 million asserted
    against them by a large managed care company.

   Represented a state-wide association of multifamily property owners before the New
    Jersey Supreme Court.

   A favorable jury verdict vindicating a market leader residential real estate company in
    a claim asserting violation of federal and state antitrust laws, unfair competition and
    contract interference by a competitive real estate agency. After a lengthy trial in the
    New Jersey Superior Court, the jury entered a verdict in favor of his client.

   A successful defense of a claim asserted by the United States that a large apartment
    owner had engaged in a pattern and practice of violating the Fair Housing Act. A trial

In public sector matters, Mr. Gormally was instrumental in prosecuting several
constitutional challenges to legislation that attempted to regulate his clients‟ commercial
activities. For example, Mr. Gormally formulated a group of multifamily property owners
and compelled municipalities to alter their practices in connection with the collection of
solid waste and recyclable materials. This action resulting in millions of dollars of cost
savings to the clients and ultimately led to the adoption of state legislation to provide
comparable municipal services to all multifamily properties. In addition, Mr. Gormally
has prevailed in actions overturning the exercise of overreaching municipal police power
in matters including: the improper regulation of video arcades, illegal public initiatives to
modify rent control ordinances and attempts to overcharge for housing inspections.
