It’s rare when an assignment doesn’t touch on multiple facets of the law. An M&A transaction, for example, may also raise issues of tax liability, executive compensation, SEC or FTC approval, while a product liability threat often is accompanied by regulatory investigations, product recalls, false advertising allegations, creditors’ rights claims, IP disputes and even criminal investigations. We therefore take a comprehensive, holistic approach to solving complex issues in the most cost-efficient manner possible.
Our litigation and transactional teams work together to perform due diligence for public offerings and major corporate transactions to help anticipate and resolve potential dispute or regulatory challenges that could potentially derail a deal. We work hand in hand with a client’s business department and/or in-house counsel to review how a specific project fits in with the client’s key objectives, which allows us to recommend and structure the most effective approach to completing a transaction. And if a matter does go to litigation, we focus on helping clients win the case well before a trial starts. Our experience compiling and analyzing the factual work-up of the opposition’s case, developing the defense strategy, prepping witnesses and experts for depositions and cross-examinations, writing advocacy documents and our creative use of infographics, videos and other visual aids to present and explain highly scientific or technological evidence gives clients an edge with both juries and judges.
