We do not believe that the hallmark of a successful litigation department devoted to solving our clients’ complex commercial disputes should be the amount of money our clients pay in settlement. We are always prepared to take a case into the end zone and have proven that time and again by the lawsuits and arbitrations we have tried successfully to conclusion. As we approach trial, you will not hear about previously undisclosed risks that require a settlement on the courthouse steps.
At the same time, we recognize that sophisticated parties can achieve a desired settlement well before a case reaches final resolution by a third party. Here, our fearlessness, 125-year track record, and small staffing philosophy help our clients get to “yes” quickly and efficiently when a consensual resolution is appropriate.
Our job is simple even when the issues are tangled and convoluted: you and your company have a complex commercial problem and we will help you find the solution. Whether the problem involves a labyrinthine series of contracts and agreements, a joint venture ordeal, a heated shareholder battle, accusations of fraud, a run-in with your regulator, or any other company-threatening legal event, we will dive in with a small, industry-experienced team, wrap our heads around the problem, and develop and implement a strategy with you, all the while maintaining flexibility and keeping a sharp eye out for unintended consequences.
