Finding Effective Solutions For Business And Commercial Disputes
Raymond Law Group LLC handles complex business litigation in a broad range of legal areas representing clients in both the service and manufacturing sectors along with real estate and construction firms and other public and private companies. The diverse legal areas in which we practice range from professional negligence and employment liability to product liability, unfair competition, trade secrets and franchise disputes.
The matters we involve ourselves in can be both internal disputes involving disagreements over capital contributions and profit distributions, sale of ownership interest, and misappropriation of opportunities, as well as conflicts with external parties that may center on fraud and misrepresentation, tortious interference with contractual relations, breach of contract, and breach of fiduciary duty. Often, problems with vendors and consultants can involve technology, e-commerce and data loss issues.
Identifying A Cost-Conscious Approach That Gets Results
Conflicts with competitors can arise out of false advertising and defamation. We love to win, but at Raymond Law Group LLC, winning means addressing the resolution of the dispute with a smart, efficient, cost-effective approach that takes into account the total litigation cost to the client, legal fees and third-party costs, the time to resolution, and the impact on the business and business relationships, not just the verdict obtained or settlement achieved.
Many clients believe that budgeting for future legal expense is unreliable and unpredictable. A major part of the problem is the large law firm’s tendency to plan and budget as if every case is tried to verdict when in fact 97% of litigated matters settle. At Raymond Law Group LLC, we focus on preparing budgets and litigation management plans that will position the matter at key inflection points for successful early resolution. We emphasize resource allocation centered on creating verdict and settlement leverage, not linearly developing discovery on issues that are a small piece of the puzzle, but don’t change the big picture.
Offering A Variety Of Alternative Fee Approaches
In addition, to both control the absolute level of legal expense and maximize return on investment on the expense dollar, Raymond Law Group LLC offers a variety of alternative fee approaches (AFAs). Complex matters with multiple parties, thorny legal issues, significant damages and a multitude of “decision tree” possibilities for the various paths and forks in the road that the litigation might take dictate the advisability of hourly rate retention until the case can be adequately assessed.
Following early case assessment, if a proposed litigation management plan recommends significant levels of legal expense, clients may elect from a number of AFAs, including contingency arrangements, hold-back bonus and risk collars. At Raymond Law Group LLC , you always get a hands-on, trial-proven, senior lawyer on top of adjusting, adapting and improvising case strategy to effectively get the most out of your legal defense dollar.
