We firmly believe that the consequences of litigation can be minimized through the skillful control of time, cost and expectation, and have spent a decade perfecting our method of Critical Path Litigation.
Critical Path Litigation
We control time by keeping you informed.
You will never be surprised unless we are, and that won’t happen much. Although we cannot predict all of the events that will occur in every case, through experience we have learned where the danger is. It’s our job to anticipate the cost of your time so that you can plan for it effectively.
We control cost by focusing on the functions necessary to prepare for trial.
We focus our energy on these critical tasks without wasting our time (and your money) on work that doesn’t take us to the best possible outcome. Because we work to a standard of excellence rather than to fill up the blocks on a timesheet, we do excellent work at a cost that is both reasonable and predictable. To back up that promise, we provide a Fee Forecast at the outset of the litigation that tells our clients how long we expect each task will take and how much money it will cost. We have spent years developing this model and take great pride in its accuracy.
We control expectation by providing accurate predictions of likely outcomes.
We do this so that our clients can make a fully informed decision whether to settle or keep fighting. It’s an easy and inviting cop-out for a litigator to tell his client that juries are unpredictable, but that kind of advice does our clients no good. We would rather give you our best answer and be wrong than give you no answer at all and let you take all the risk.
