LITIGATION AND ARBITRATION
From the firm's inception, our Litigation Department has been involved in many litigation of its time, handling complex and threatening cases. We handle high-stakes disputes in every forum, from courts of first instance and appellate courts to domestic and international arbitrations, and from alternative dispute resolution proceedings to administrative tribunals of all kinds. To each, we bring a sure grasp of the underlying substantive issues and the forensic skills and strategic insights necessary to produce successful results.
As such, our Litigation Department has achieved a reputation for unparalleled excellence. We believe that successful litigation requires comprehensive, 360-degree strategies carefully calibrated to each client's specific needs, risks and goals, and to the political, economic and social realities of the day. Our mission at all times is to safeguard the client's interests and contain the client's risk and exposure. Our approach takes into account all available tactics, weighing the relative effectiveness, risk and cost of each. We view it essential to formulate, early in the case, preliminary judgments about the client's exposure, the likelihood of success and the most cost-effective way to proceed. We then work with clients to develop jointly the optimal strategies to accomplish their legal and business goals.
