We are laser-focused on our clients’ business interests and objectives working as a partner to develop and execute tailored strategies closely aligned with their business objectives. We secure solutions—whether in or out of court—to keep the business moving forward.
Litigation typically accounts for the largest part of a company’s legal spend. We never lose sight of the disruption and cost of these disputes to our clients. We control cost without compromise, collaborating with clients throughout to ensure that legal and business decisions are compatible—from early case evaluation to strategy development, budgeting and, if required, to trial.
Trial should be a last resort. We make aggressive use of early case assessment, evaluating all options including mediation, arbitration, settlement and trial to provide the most efficient and effective means possible for our clients to reach a positive outcome.
When trial is the best course of action, we assess the risk, develop a strategy, pursue aggressively and focus on a winning result.
Our winning record in cases tried to verdict or judgment is exceptional, and our record of resolving cases by dispositive motion, thus avoiding unnecessary litigation in the early stages is likewise outstanding. We are also adept at negotiating settlements and working collaboratively with other defense counsel in multiparty cases.
We regularly serve as national counsel, co-national counsel and regional counsel representing clients in federal and state courts, the U.S. Supreme Court and the U.S. Courts of Appeals.
