We try civil cases for businesses and individuals in their private affairs. Our trial practice covers a wide range of litigation, including matters involving business disputes, toxic torts, product liability, unfair competition, securities fraud, employment relationships, condemnation, and professional malpractice.
Few other firms have had the opportunity to work with the highest caliber experts, to develop evidence for deconstructing opposing experts, to research themes and predictive questions with the top jury consultants, and then to test their work in trials throughout the country.
Success against many of the most successful trial lawyers led to our reputation as a leading trial firm for high stakes cases. We have been selected to serve as national trial counsel for several different companies involved in product liability litigation across the country, as lead counsel in securities class action litigation, and as special asbestos defense counsel for a manufacturer in bankruptcy.
We do not represent a large number of clients. But, the clients whose cases we accept have our undivided attention and the benefit of decades of experience in challenging cases.
Our experience trying cases has taught us how to concentrate our pre-trial efforts on the questions that the court or jury will answer. We have learned that we will introduce only the strongest evidence at trial, that weaker evidence undermines the credibility of stronger evidence, and that expensive discovery which might lead to weaker evidence can be avoided.
Representing both plaintiffs and defendants and our trial experience in these types of matters gives us a perspective others may lack. Understanding the other side’s motives and tactics informs not only how we try a case but also our approach in settlement negotiations.
