Commitment to Clients
We take a comprehensive, holistic approach to client service and how we handle all litigation matters:
“Big picture” approach
With more than 250 litigators, Kaye Scholer takes a coordinated, interdisciplinary approach to address all the issues related to your matter. A product liability or securities fraud claim, for example, often are accompanied by federal and state regulatory investigations, product recalls, false advertising allegations, class action and derivative suits, creditors’ disputes, IP disputes, and/or criminal investigations. Focused on helping you win the case well before a trial starts, at the earliest possible time, we compile and analyze the factual work-up of the opposition’s case, develop a comprehensive multi-faceted defense strategy, evaluate and prepare witnesses and experts for depositions, cross examinations, and draft factual and legal memoranda and advocacy documents giving clients an edge in winning motions to dismiss, summary judgment motions and Daubert/Frye motions.
We devise innovative solutions that lead to the best possible client outcomes. We’re not afraid to tackle the tough issues or, when warranted, play hard ball, both in and outside the court rooms. Our litigators serve as lead trial counsel in complicated cases involving a wide range of products, from prescription drugs and software to consumer products and entertainment to the most complex structured finance products. We also conduct early risk assessments to identify and help you resolve potential problems to reduce the severity and/or number of claims filed.
We “partner” with both the client and other law firms to take full advantage of the talents of all the lawyers on a matter and work hard to ensure that co-counsel and local counsel are fully engaged as cooperative participants. Clients regularly select us to serve as national coordinating counsel for multi-jurisdictional litigation because of our extensive background in effective case and project management.
We offer reliable and sophisticated computer programs for modeling case budgets to help ensure more predictability and efficiently track and monitor fees and expenses throughout the course of an assignment. We also offer clients a wide array of alternate fee arrangements.
