By failing to prepare you are preparing to fail.

Benjamin Franklin

This universal truth holds doubly true for litigation. We take great satisfaction in helping minimize a client’s risk of expensive and time-consuming courtroom battles. However, sometimes litigation is the only way to right a wrong, stop an attack or protect precious rights and reputations.

When relationships deteriorate and conflicts arise such that a fight becomes necessary, preparation is likewise the key to success. There is no substitute for an experienced legal team’s tireless work in marshaling the facts and understanding the law.

In addition to tireless work, an effective advocate must be an excellent listener. Our clients know their industries, competition, and goals. We listen, learn and are responsive. Litigation is not a “one size fits all” solution. Success depends on teamwork, and teamwork requires listening.

The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.

George Bernard Shaw

There’s a lot more to competence than a law degree and a modicum of courtroom skill.

Fred Thompson

Mediation and Arbitration

Most modern business contracts contain clauses for Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), such as mediation, arbitration, judicial references and special master proceedings. In addition to traditional courtroom trials, our attorneys are well-versed in ADR measures. Often they cost less and are resolved quicker than traditional lawsuits, minimizing risk and allowing for business as usual.
