Your business needs reliable legal advice to keep it on a profitable course.  That may involve anticipating and heading off legal distractions, or protecting your business assets with rigorous advocacy, whether in court, the marketplace or with government.  We work with clients to impart a culture of practice habits that add just a little time to your transactions but focus you, and your staff, on both evaluating your business’s position and improving its practices for the future to limit risk and improve profitability.  Some of those principles are described in our recent white paper entitled “Preparing Your Business for its Next Lawsuit” (to read, enter here).   When disputes do arise, these habits will give your business better resources to defend its rights.

When a dispute cannot be resolved, counsel must identify your business’s strongest position and champion it diligently.  Victory seldom comes until your adversary feels the sting of attack and the worry of mounting costs.  However, the battle is often to the wise, those who treat a litigation or arbitration as a specialized business deal: As with any other deal, the “profit” is the gain minus the expense, and that expense is best measured by both fees and ongoing business losses, whether from distraction or lost opportunities.  You can only manage such a deal to a “profit” when you have the information you need to balance cost and potential benefit.   More detail can be found in our recent white paper entitled “Care and Feeding of Business Counsel on a Budget” (to read, enter here).

We look forward to discussing with you how legal services can bring value to your business.  We believe that, over time, we can become the trusted counselor your business needs to remain on its profitable course.
