Litigation is distracting, expensive, stressful -- and sometimes absolutely necessary.  When what's at stake is valuable enough to fight over, you need close communication, fast and reliable analysis of risks and strategies, well-written case filings, well-articulated courtroom arguments, and an absolute commitment to winning.  Sometimes victory comes all at once with a judge's decision or a jury's verdict; more often, it comes only after the steady accumulation of leverage to be used in negotiating a favorable settlement agreement.  Whatever the venue, we understand lawsuits and litigation.
