Our lawyers recognize that litigation is but one form of conflict resolution, It is often not the most effective and is usually not the most economical route. We pursue alternative dispute resolution whenever it suits the client’s interests. Through our litigation experience, we execute strategies to prepare the cases for mediation or settlement at a cost-effective time and opportunity to achieve terms favorable to and welcomed by our clients and to avoid unnecessary expenses that may be an impediment to conflict resolution.

Our litigation attorneys have extensive courtroom experience and are prepared to litigate each case through trial. Our diversity of practice areas and clients results in our attorneys having been trained and mentored in cases from large, complex litigation to cases that provide ample trial experience. We combine the scholarship and creativity to craft and implement litigation strategies to seek early victories. We relish our work ethic and dedication to our clients’ interests to drive each case across the goal line.

We consult with clients to agree upon and adhere to litigation budgets and give each case a high priority. We staff each case appropriately to ensure that the resources devoted to the case are sufficient to accomplish the client’s objectives, consistent with the client’s litigation budget.

We have extensive experience in leading industries and listen to our clients to understand their businesses as well as their business and litigation objectives.
