We appreciate that litigation can be expensive and highly disruptive and we work tirelessly to manage the legal costs for our clients.
Our attorneys regularly partner with leading scientists, technical experts and consultants to present the most effective evidence and strongest legal arguments. In addition, while we have the bench strength and resources to represent companies in the most challenging litigation matters, we have established strong partnerships with leading attorneys across the country when a client would be best served by that arrangement. This collaboration allows our firm to staff each matter as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible no matter how large or complex the litigation.
