We perform the following kinds of legal work: Antitrust litigation, antitrust counseling, business litigation (patent misuse, trademark infringement, false advertising, securities fraud, RICO claims, and other business disputes), various kinds of real estate matters, insurance law, and white-collar crime.
We limit our work to these practice areas so that we can devote our full efforts to matters that we fully understand and can perform at the highest level of proficiency. Moreover, we accept only a limited number of matters so that we can devote sufficient time and our undivided attention to each one. If we cannot accept your matter, we may be able to help you find another capable law firm that can do so.
Our Ability to Accept Large Cases
Several times we have been opposed by teams of highly capable attorneys fielded by leading global law firms. In any such matter, or whenever the need arises, we can quickly assemble our own team of first-rate professionals who have worked with us successfully on prior occasion, and we can also procure essential litigation services from reliable outside service-providers, so that we are never outmatched or overwhelmed even by the largest or most pro-active global firm. We think that our work in these matters has reflected favorably on us, and we have obtained successful results for our clients in exceedingly difficult, sprawling, and complex antitrust controversies. All the while, we are able to maintain our reasonable billing arrangements because of the manner in which our practice is structured and our lean fixed costs.
