Our Approach to Complex Civil Litigation
In litigation, our goal is always to secure the best possible outcome for our client as quickly and cost-effectively as possible. We work closely with our clients at all stages of the litigation, helping them assess their options and make informed decisions at every step along the way. We are also sensitive to the fact that certain cases may require a measured approach that allows the parties to maintain a working relationship, and when appropriate we can tailor our representation toward a focus on negotiating a mutually-acceptable resolution.
In addition, several of our attorneys are experienced in alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods, and our litigation team includes experienced mediators and arbitrators as well. If mediation or arbitration makes sense given the circumstances at hand – either in lieu of or in conjunction with litigation – we can use these methods to help further streamline the resolution of your dispute.
