What Sets Us Apart
We place an emphasis on early case assessment to help employers identify opportunities to minimize exposure and the costs of litigation, including, for example, early dismissals of some or all of the claims, referral to arbitration, and prompt education of the court that actions are not appropriate for certification as a class or collective action matter.
If necessary, we effectively utilize discovery, technology and expert witnesses to help demonstrate that individual issues preclude certification, while always maintaining a focus on effective trial strategies should a trial of one or more claims become necessary.
Quite simply, while relying on our significant class/collective action knowledge and experience as a foundation, we bring a fresh, out-of-the-box perspective to each matter to help us identify the best and most appropriate strategy to defend against that specific claim.
Significantly, while developing strategy, we work directly with our clients to identify a budget for each stage of the matter to maximize alignment between management of the litigation strategy and our clients’ overall business objectives.
