During the progress of our representation, we attempt to keep our
clients informed about the progress of their matter by copying them on
relevant documentation. Thus, when we discuss issues with our client,

This form of preparation and communication has served us well in the
over 28 years we have been in practice. Although we have an active
litigation practice, very few of our cases have actually gone to trial.

practice, in substantial part, because of our methodology of strategizing
and prosecuting (or defending) our client’s interests.
Our litigation experience carries over into our transactional business
and vice versa. We approach our contract work in much the same way,
first identifying our client’s objectives, then, in negotiation, we apply
our litigation experience. What contract provisions or language is

up-front understanding of the costs to be incurred.

business objectives in the shortest possible time-that's our philosophy.
