Bruce Fischman left a large Florida law firm, after attaining the status of litigation partner, to open The Fischman Law Firm, P.A in 1984. From 1986 through 2003, he and his firm represented HealthSouth Corporation, a six billion dollar Alabama publicly traded healthcare corporation, as its principal outside national counsel handling major matters in Florida, throughout the United States and overseas. Healthsouth developed over 2000 locations and employed over 50,000 individuals. Following his experience with Healthsouth, Mr. Fischman served for eight years as Outside National Counsel to the Document Management Division of Cintas Corporation (NASDAQ: CTAS), an Ohio public company. Cintas is a national leader in secure document management services. He also served as outside national counsel to Shred-it International, Inc. (Alabama and Ohio) and Access Information Management (California).

Mr. Fischman currently serves as principal outside national and local counsel and advisor to the billionaire Moishe Mana and his related companies including McArthur Dairy, Mana Contemporary, Mana Fine Arts, Mana Wynwood, Mana Miami, The Mana Real estate Development entities, Milk Studios, Milk Makeup, and GRM Information Management ( Florida, New York, Illinois, and New Jersey). Mana is one of the largest commercial landowners and developers in Miami Florida, Jersey City, N.J. and Chicago Illinois.. Mr. Mana has been described as another Henry Flagler in his remaking of Miami. The ongoing engagements involve  acquisitions, transactional work and negotiations and litigation involving real estate, construction and development, record storage, public bidding and art storage.

Mr. Fischman represents Westdale Real Estate Investment and Management, a national real estate development, investment and management company headquartered in Dallas Texas, with six regional offices throughout the country. Westdale is currently a major contributor to the redevelopment of north Wynwood, Miami, Florida.

Bruce Fischman was instrumental in successfully litigating, negotiating and transacting a land swap of four (4) parcels of land between Miami-Dade County Florida and the Mana organization in Wynwood, Miami Florida. The parcels became instrumental in the largest assemblage of real estate for an approved Special Area Plan (SAP) with Wynwood in the City of Miami, Florida. In the process of the swap, Mana is constructing an office building for Miami-Dade County, Florida that will house a commissioner's office and the Puerto Rican Cultural Center.

Fischman was lead counsel in complex and lengthy real estate litigation against the Miami Parking Authority by the Mana organization resulting from a failed public bid to develop, pursuant to the state's public/private partnership law (P3), the real property owned by the authority and adjacent to land already owned by Mana. After a full trial, the case settled following negotiations by Bruce Fischman with the governmental entity. Mr. Mana will be able to substantially extend the size of his planned development and have use of 40 stories of airspace for one ($1) dollar per year along with other benefits.

Mr. Fischman was principal counsel, along with local New York Counsel, regarding litigation with one of the largest modern art dealers in the world. The claim in the court filed pleadings was that Mr. Fischman's client, an art storage merchant, refused to release many millions of dollars of artwork because the merchant claimed that it was owed money for storage. The art dealer disputed the merchant's claim and demanded millions of dollars in damages. During litigation, Mr. Fischman was successful in mediating the dispute, amicably resolving the matter between the parties.

Within the area of Internet Defamation law, Fischman has served as one of the pioneers of the sector, being referenced in many publications. He was one of two guest speakers invited to the Fortune Magazine 500 Conference in Beverly Hills, California ( a meeting of the top 500 public company CEO's in the world). He has been a speaker on NPR. He has also been an invited speaker at the Harvard Law School.
