Richard and his colleagues create customized business litigation strategies. We find out what’s important to each client, assess the context of the dispute, and recommend an approach to maximize opportunities and anticipate adverse consequences.
We litigate aggressively to maximize our clients’ negotiating positions.
All things being equal, we prefer negotiated resolutions because they save our clients’ time, money, and emotional angst. Should negotiations be inappropriate or fail, we pursue a litigation strategy that enhances each client’s chances of success in court.
