Our approach involves enlisting the aid of legal experts early on in the litigation process, reviewing the alleged misconduct thoroughly, and formulating the most feasible legal course of action. We always strive to be the first to seek and obtain discovery, with the goal of taking control of the litigation pace. This gives us more opportunity to obtain the information that will be crucial in supporting dispositive motions, and that will contribute to an early settlement.
