Firm Philosophy

When a dispute arises, our top priority is to protect our clients' legal rights and business interests. We view each case not only from a legal but from a business perspective, ensuring that the resolution of each case makes practical business sense. A favorable legal result does not always equate with a practical business result. Thus, we strive to creatively use the law to achieve our clients' goals. It is this precise, out-of-the-box thinking that has become the hallmark of our litigation practice and, we submit, has garnered the respect of judges as well as our peers.

While trying cases is our passion, we know full-well that a trial may not always be in our clients' best interests. We have been particularly successful in resolving disputes for clients by employing litigation alternatives such as mediation. We believe our detailed preparation and reputation for creativity and aggressiveness often influence opponents when employing a means of alternative dispute resolution.

Whatever the venue, we remain committed to our mission of solving our clients' most serious controversies by acting aggressively, creatively, and decisively to advance each client’s cause in a cost-effective manner. We apply this philosophy to the representation of an array of clients from individuals to corporations.

We apply a goal-oriented rubrick to each case -- conceptualizing first the legal and business goals of our clients and then working our way backwards from these goals to plan our course of action right from a case's inception. We treat every case from the outset as if it will end up at trial, ensuring thorough preparation and organization of the facts and the governing law. Our preparation includes the facilitation and development of core themes, derived from relentless and methodical analysis of the factual record. No matter what the legal task, we strive to portray our client's position through the most thorough and compelling presentation.

Always, we are pragmatists. If it is in our clients' best interests to settle a case, we recommend settlement. If it is in our clients' best interests to take a case to trial, we stand ready to do so. We believe that hard work and thorough preparation afford our clients choices. Everything we do for our clients is designed to advance their interests both in the pending dispute and with respect to their ultimate business or personal goal.
