WHY ARE WE THE FIRM OF CHOICE FOR SO MANY COMPANIES AND INDIVIDUALS?
Today's legal practice focuses on two key elements: efficiency and results. We deliver for all of our clients--from Fortune 500 giants to individuals. So why do we succeed? It's a simple equation:
Clients today are not interested in mahogany conference tables, stunning views, and marble reception halls. In today's business environment, results are king. We are efficient, innovative, and dedicated to redefining top-tier representation without the overhead. We listen, focus, and create a litigation strategy designed to maximize efficiency, minimize costs, eliminate budget surprises, and deliver results. It's that simple.
The effectiveness of a firm begins with the skills, knowledge, and judgment that can only be gained through time. Our attorneys have deep backgrounds in a broad range of litigation spanning trade secret, employment, false advertising, trademark, copyright, unfair competition, class actions, and complex commercial litigation. Our practice areas highlight our attorneys' diverse litigation experience over the past 10 years, including extensive experience in both state and federal courts. Our testimonials reflect the value we provide to our clients.
Our attorneys have provided exceptional service to startups, individuals, and many of the world's best known companies, including Toyota, IBM, Intuit, Shell Oil, Palm, National Semiconductor, Intuitive Surgical, Warnaco, SerialTek, Sprint, Macrovision, Charles Schwab, Impax Laboratories, and KV Pharmaceuticals, among many others.
Our attorneys are in court and arguing before judges and juries on a regular basis. We thrive in the courtroom and think on our feet. We do not approach discovery as a billing exercise. From the very inception of a case, we are building the story that will be presented in front of a judge or jury, and every step we take in litigation is designed with that end-game at the forefront. This results in tight focus, earlier case resolution, and better results for our clients.
In-house counsel know that electronic discovery is the biggest sink for time, money, and resources. We have designed and implemented complex litigation hold and review policies for Fortune 500 companies, and we have successfully and efficiently managed massive document collection and review projects for a wide variety of clients. We have worked closely with all of the major e-discovery vendors and we have substantial in-house capabilities for managing electronic documents in a far more efficient manner than a typical large firm. Our technical expertise allows us to design a unique e-discovery protocol at the inception of a case in order to minimize costs and focus on the key evidence that will be required for trial.
In our offices, you won't find a war room stacked with boxes of documents. We use custom-designed software and other innovative technology to run a virtually paperless firm. We can locate key documents, testimony, exhibits, and hidden evidence with great efficiency. This results not only in lower bills for our clients, but greater effectiveness at depositions, in court, and in trial.
