Risk Management and Litigation Avoidance

Recognizing the value of strategic thinking before the courtroom looms, many clients approach us well before litigation is on the horizon, to best position themselves just in case.  Our risk management and strategic advice helps our clients to avoid litigation by taking sensible, defensible positions when disputes arise, and to win litigation that can’t be avoided by taking the right steps in advance to set up their claims and defenses to prevail.  Examples include helping a leading national on-line retailer plan its negotiating positions in light of available contract rights, obligations and remedies, assisting a new e-commerce company structure its website to avoid litigation or to win it if it comes, and advising a major software company regarding potential non-competition issues arising from prior employment of new hires.
