The main result to be discussed will be the boundedness from $L^\infty \times L^\infty$ into $BMO$ of bilinear pseudodifferential operators with symbols in a range of bilinear H\"ormander classes of critical order. Such boundedness property is achieved by means of new continuity results for bilinear operators with symbols in certain classes and a new pointwise inequality relating bilinear operators and maximal functions. The role played by these estimates within the general theory will be addressed.
