From high exposure, multi-million dollar legal disputes to minor claims, litigation imposes a significant burden upon individuals and businesses. The added financial costs of a legal case coupled with the stress on our clients' daily lives, demands an approach to litigation that is client-focused and cost effective. At Davison & McCarthy, we strive to reduce the intrusion of litigation into our clients' affairs by gaining an early, thorough understanding of the clients' business, identifying the legal issues affecting them and addressing all other threshold concerns. We scrupulously analyze the factual basis for the claims, develop a legal strategy and implement the plan as expeditiously and efficiently as possible to achieve our clients' objectives. Often, we can reach an early accord through direct dialogue with the opposition or by utilizing mediation or other forms of alternative dispute resolution.
If an early resolution is not effectuated, we will be ready to aggressively litigate our clients' case at trial or on appeal. We are truly passionate about our role as advocates on our clients' behalf. To this end, we will carefully conform and implement our legal strategy to be consistent with our clients' litigation goals and risk tolerance.
Our positive problem-solving approach allows our clients to serve as a central part of the litigation team, informed every step of the way.
