Our litigators have earned an excellent reputation for cost-effectively managing complex litigation. We achieve this by communicating efficiently, deploying resources appropriately, responding to developments rapidly, and driving disputes forward to a timely and satisfactory conclusion. Our attorneys are committed to the cost effective resolution of litigation disputes. We are experienced in the preparation of litigation budgets and are open to discussion of alternative fee billing arrangements. We also have experience with joint representation of multiple parties in complex litigation so as to further reduce per capita litigation costs. Appropriate conflict waivers are necessary, of course, in such cases. In addition to the firm’s experience as primary counsel, we have assisted national firms as regional and local counsel in numerous cases as a proven cost-effective litigation team.

We are prepared to work with our clients toward early case evaluation and resolution before substantial attorney fees are incurred. While we are experienced in alternative dispute resolution such as mediation, our attorneys are prepared to go to trial in those cases where a trial is necessary.
