Litigation Management

With respect to litigation, our goal is to assess and manage a file from initial retainer to outcome while keeping a client informed at each step.

These steps are:
  1. Liability assessment
  2. Quantum assessment if possible
  3. Investigation required with anticipated timeline for completion
  4. "To do” list with anticipated timeline for completion
  5. Litigation plan and budget
Discussions are held with clients after each major phase of the litigation process. These phrases are:
  • Upon receipt of file
  • After examinations for discovery
  • After pretrial hearing
  • Prior to trial
  • After trial
At each discussion, reports provided include:
  • Updated liability assessment
  • Early recommendation for retaining experts
  • Updated quantum assessment if possible
  • Further investigation required with anticipated timeline for completion
  • Updated "to do” list with anticipated timeline for completion
  • Updated litigation plan and budget variance
Clients receive reports on examination for discoveries, pre-trials, and etc. 48 hours after the event.

Clients also receive an in-person full review of their litigation portfolio bi-annually or more frequently if desired. This meeting is held at the client’s location.

Efficient and cost-effective management of a client’s portfolio is assisted by our custom database system that enables the status of any one action or the entire portfolio to be available immediately. This enables a client to receive accurate and up-to-the-minute summaries of a case,
