Navigate the litigation labyrinth

The best defense

Some legal situations require more outside consultation than others. Commercial litigation can involve a range of counter parties, including suppliers, competitors, subcontractors, shareholders, lenders and business partners, as well as current or former employees. In such complex cases, high-quality, objective advice can exert a strong influence. Litigants benefit from the help of our expert witnesses, financial professionals, damage and value assessors, arbitrators, and other advisors. Doing without them can be risky — specialists bring a level of knowledge, independence and experience to the proceedings that can weigh in your favor. And their absence can work in favor of the opposition, who you should assume will have capable support.
