In the modern dispute resolution marketplace, many turn to non-court alternatives. Precise figures vary, but 90 – 95% of all court cases settle before trial. Delay, expense, and uncertainty often motivate early resolution. Our motto: Litigation if necessary, but not necessarily litigation.
Litigation is our exclusive focus: court and administrative hearings, trials, appeals, and judicial review. Yet most of our cases do settle before trial. In our experience, and that of most other litigators, putting forward a strong litigation case puts you in position to negotiate the best possible settlement in the circumstances.
We are experienced with alternate means of dispute resolution: negotiation, formal mediation, and arbitration. If more cost-effective than going to court, we make every reasonable effort to resolve disputes without the expense and delay of court.
