Member Firm Profile

Clients from a broad range of industries entrust us with their most complex conflicts, high-profile matters and potentially costly trials in courtrooms across the country. Our trial lawyers handle all types of disputes, from contract claims to major class actions, giving us the wide-ranging experience that enables us to develop strategies to achieve clients’ goals. Every trial is different, and recognizing that enables us to bring a creative and thoughtful defense approach to each case after thoroughly evaluating it with our client and gaining a comprehensive understanding of their needs and objectives. Our extensive trial experience gives us an unparalleled grasp of the importance of understanding and explaining complex facts necessary to achieve success at trial whether in front of a judge or jury.

Our trial lawyers are widely acclaimed by clients and peers and have earned recognition by the American College of Trial Lawyers, Chambers USA, Benchmark Litigation and The Best Lawyers in America®. BTI Litigation Outlook 2015: Changes, Trends and Opportunities for Law Firms also lists us among the top firms in the country in four areas of litigation and Benchmark Litigation has named us its Ohio Litigation Firm of the Year.

By applying proven legal project management principles to each engagement, we create a precise, efficient method for overseeing all aspects of a trial. We monitor costs to budget and communicate frequently regarding progress, developments and changes in scope, timeline or budget. Careful analysis and planning allow us to staff a trial team appropriately, using resources that control costs while providing the highest-quality counsel and service.

Our trial lawyers have also been at the forefront of offering clients alternatives to the standard hourly-rate billing structure. We devise tailored, value-based pricing arrangements with a sharp focus on achieving maximum cost-efficiency and meeting clients’ needs for more predictability and better alignment with business objectives.

Our SmartPaTH solution earned recognition from The Financial Times, which ranked us first in the category “Most innovative North American law firms 2015: New working models.” We also have been recognized nationally by BTI as one of the top seven firms innovating by making changes others are not to improve the client experience and as one of the top 22 firms considered best at developing and implementing alternative fee arrangements.
