In addition to the other practice areas listed, we represent individuals and businesses as both plaintiffs and defendants in a variety of general litigation matters.
Exposure to litigation can arise long before anyone files a lawsuit. We recognize that successful outcomes for clients balance a number of factors, and that, in many situations, avoidance of litigation is a paramount concern. Litigation risk assessment is the process in which we are hired to evaluate a client’s exposure to the risks and costs associated with instituting, or defending against, potential litigation. Clients often find that engaging in such a process allows them to make an informed decision.
For those clients that then choose to retain us to further address the issue, we draw on a wide range of strategies to pursue our clients’ objectives, yet do not fear the prospect of carrying a case all the way through to trial, or even through to appeal. We are particularly known for our aggressive style of representation.
Many lawsuits involve a public perception aspect and require skillful interaction with the media to control a client’s image or minimize collateral issues. We have experience with drafting media statements to local, national and international news sources so as to best position a client seeking to explain his or her legal situation without risking unnecessary exposure.
