Litigation management

Litigation Management

  • Litigation Management is a comprehensive management tool

    and a courtesy that we offer to our clients:

    • It provides management with total visibility

    • It categorizes cases in terms of degree of risk (liability and damages)

    • It conducts discovery & investigation consistent with risks

    • It recommends dispositions consistent with risks

  • Litigation Management ensures attorney accountability and provides a

    forum for discussion

  • Litigation Management provides a vehicle for controlling costs

    For more detail see Litigation Management

Mini focus group

Mini Focus Group

  • Mini-Focus Group is a practical tool that we have made part of our routine defense arsenal to assess risk and prepare for trial

    • It utilizes candidate jurors to explore how they think and react to case issues

    • It explores jury biases and common life experiences and how they affect case issues

    • It allows the defense to construct a “trial story” that fits juror thought patterns

      For more detail, see Mini Focus Group
