How our ability to litigate influences client goals and settlement
We believe that the most effective way to achieve a client's goals is to have a litigation strategy from the outset. A case that is prepared to go to trial provides the client with the greatest leverage to achieve his or her goals during settlement negotiations. The process should be methodical, well-thought out and give the client a sense that his/her case has a game plan and an end goal. In addition, all settlement negotiations should be undertaken with a clear understanding of the likely outcome were the matter to be litigated. Because of our litigation experience, we are often substituted into a case on the eve of trial when settlement negotiations have either proven fruitless or broken down and current counsel is unable to take the case to trial.
