Complex Litigation

PRACTICE SUMMARY

The complex litigation group has extensive experience managing litigation efficiently and effectively. We have demonstrated ourselves to be a highly-skilled and cost-effective option for our clients in multijurisdictional and complex litigation. We pride ourselves in providing the quality of work typically associated with a large, national firm but are able to do so at a reduced cost.

Our attorneys are flexible and team oriented, and they routinely integrate themselves into multi-firm litigation teams in complex matters. We take on a range of roles, including national coordinating counsel, national trial counsel, affirmative discovery counsel, e-discovery, and document management counsel, as well as the more traditional roles of regional and local counsel.

We are familiar with the legal and practical issues that arise in anticipation of multidistrict litigation and during its administration. We have supervised motion practice on a national level and maintain a robust library of briefs on a wide variety of topics. In matters requiring an in-depth understanding of complex scientific and medical issues, we serve as national and international science counsel, responsible for fully understanding the underlying science, identifying experts in the relevant disciplines, and preparing those experts for depositions and trial. Our attorneys are accustomed to traveling across the country to complete initial discovery and analyze individual cases to determine whether they are appropriate for early resolution or whether they should be identified as bellwether trial candidates. Our counsel continues after the litigation is resolved by performing detailed retrospective analyses for our clients and providing specific recommendations to reduce exposure moving forward.
