Early in the litigation process, members of the firm discuss with clients their objectives, budgeting and fee arrangements and formulate strategy. The client remains involved and informed throughout the case.
The strategy developed may include alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods, creative settlement approaches, and preparation for trial. Because ADR processes often allow cases to be resolved more quickly at a lower cost, the firm seeks to determine at an early stage whether these alternative methods can be effective in a particular matter.
A senior member of the firm will direct the litigation strategy and participate actively and regularly in the case. For the client, this approach provides a high level of expertise and efficient task allocation, resulting in cost-effectiveness.
With corporate, governmental and non-profit clients, the firm works closely with in-house counsel, sharing tasks and assignments in the most beneficial manner. The firm uses the latest information technology to assure rapid and effective communication and development of working papers, court filings and other documents.
As an experienced civil trial firm, Richman Greer continuously strives to obtain the best possible results for its clients and to minimize the natural unpredictability of the litigation process.
