We are trial lawyers, not merely litigators. We are experienced in handling a wide variety of cases in the areas in which we specialize, from routine disputes and claims, to complex high-exposure document-intensive matters. Each of our partners is experienced in handling jury trials, court trials, and appellate work.
Our attorneys also have significant transactional experience. We provide advice and transaction documentation to clients who are involved in deal making in the areas of our expertise, and offer preventative legal advice, insurance and risk management counseling. Additionally, each year we are involved in the sale or financing of many millions of dollars worth of vessels, aircraft, and business assets. We also have expertise in restructuring and work-outs.
We are committed to working pro-actively with all of our clients to provide the best possible service in a cost-effective manner. We promptly provide budgets of anticipated legal fees and costs and we are willing to discuss non-hourly fee arrangements. At each significant stage we explain case options with the goal of listening to our clients desires and seeking to achieve them as expeditiously and economically as possible. We recognize that we must earn our clients' trust every day by placing their interests and needs first.
We utilize state-of-the-art litigation software capable of handling millions of pages of case documents in a digital groupware format. We have substantial experience with advanced trial presentation technology, and we would be pleased to provide demonstrations to clients or prospective clients. Our network allows our attorneys to access e-mail and our system while traveling or in trial in other cities. We are also able to provide litigation support remotely and to quickly utilize our attorneys' prior relevant work product in order to effect savings both in time and client expense.
