Protecting Your Interests

We understand the powerful impact major litigation can have on a company; we’re committed to working with you to avoid litigation, wherever possible. If litigation does become unavoidable, we’ll move quickly to contain risk and minimize its impact. And as discovery can be a protracted and costly aspect of litigation, we’ll focus our energies in a clearly targeted discovery process.

Our legal strategies are designed to ensure the continued, effective flow of your daily business operations, as well as to protect your long-term financial plans. We offer alternative fee structures and cost-efficient methods to protect you from runaway costs while ensuring quality in all our deliverables.


Our skills and background successfully serve a broad range of industries: financial services, technology, life sciences, pharmaceutical, energy, retail, and healthcare, to name a few.
 

The depth of litigation and jury trial skill we offer is drawn straight from experience: in one representative three-year period we litigated 10,000 cases and we took cases to trial in every major U.S. jurisdiction, as well as in the United Kingdom and Europe. This includes appearances in state appellate courts across the United States and in all 13 federal courts of appeals, as well as the U.S. Supreme Court. We also have a broad range of skills in alternative dispute resolutions.
