Issues in discovery are time consuming, expensive for clients, and increasingly complex, as more information is generated and obtained over the internet, and the capacity for document creation and manipulation has grown exponentially over the last decade. We can manage this burden and effectively analyze and report on the strengths and deficiencies of evidence, as well as deficiencies of opposing parties in responding to your discovery requests.
We do everything from drafting and sending discovery requests, analyzing and reporting on discovery responses, and preparing discovery dispute correspondence and motions that enable you to compel discovery, all on the outbound side of the equation, and we help our clients ensure that privileged client information is properly protected, as well as reviewing and consulting parties and non-parties in responding to discovery requests from your adversaries. We believe depositions are frequently the most powerful and effective tools in discovery, and as such, devote ourselves to ensuring proper identification of deposition witnesses, preparation of questions and areas of questioning in each deposition, and will coordinate and take depositions on your behalf when it serves you and your case best. O
nce transcripts are obtained, we utilize the same high quality system of summarizing testimony used in analysis of written discovery. We also provide focus group services, wherein we organize the focus group, divide them into sub-groups where necessary and appropriate, create a flexible format for questions and areas of discussion, and work with you in questioning the group(s) regarding particulars that relate to your case, all while maintaining full protection of attorney-client privilege. Mediation and Arbitration: we offer our services in mediation and arbitration, often in unconventional settings like the resolution of Board of Director disputes, and arbitration of complex litigation issues, that typically are resolved elsewhere.
Along with these services, we also conduct Summary Trials and Mini Jury Trials, where the efficiency of these proceedings can help parties get to a quicker and better resolution of their differences. We can also take the burden of procuring expert witnesses, investigating their qualifications (whether friendly or adverse), and preparing them with you for trial, off your shoulders and allow you to focus on the issues of going to trial or settling the case. When legal research and drafting needs more attention than you can provide in your case, we offer high quality service to provide you with exceptional briefs, motions, pleadings and memoranda of law.
Finally, we team with valuation and damages experts, to inform you of the value of your case, and the best strategies for accomplishing what you need in the litigation process. When considering the superiority of service we provide, our rates are exceptionally competitive and our work is directed toward accomplishing the results you need.
