Case Study 2
Taking over a case before trial
To take over a case shortly before trial and win, a firm must learn the nuanced facts and legal issues, uncover new insights in the evidence and arguments, finish any remaining depositions and expert reports, win the key motions, develop a wining trial strategy for liability and damages, prepare powerful trial examinations and visuals—and do so in a very short period of time.
When we face this test, we excel. Here is an example.
The client (CASI) went into bankruptcy. Lockheed sued the client and the client responded with its own counterclaims. After intensive litigation, the trial was rapidly approaching. The client decided to seek new counsel with “trial and technical expertise.”
Who do you turn to as trial approaches?
The results – a very satisfied client:
“It takes exceptional lawyering for a judge to award punitive damages.”
