Litigation Services Group

Litigation is a feature of the landscape in today’s business world. Whether clients need to act affirmatively to protect their rights or are faced with a suit or threatened suit against them, choosing an experienced litigation team with a proven track record of success is critical. Without the proper management of seasoned trial lawyers, litigation can act as a drain on a client’s financial resources and a distraction, both logistically and psychologically, from the day-to-day successful operation of a business. Managed skillfully, litigation can be an effective tool in protecting and furthering the rights and interests of businesses.

At Sherrard, German & Kelly, our Litigation Services Group is comprised of a dedicated group of skilled lawyers with diverse experience in trial work, as well as in alternate dispute resolution and case management. Our litigators are aggressive with an impressive list of wins. But we never lose sight of the bottom line and understand that the object of litigation is to achieve a successful business outcome for the client. Toward that end, we collaborate with our clients so that we can employ a strategic and cost-effective approach to dispute resolution. We know when more is not better and will counsel our clients toward the most economical approach that will achieve their needs. We also effectively use technology to contain litigation costs and improve results.

Essential to a strategic, cost-effective and business-savvy approach to litigation is our ability to master the facts of each case, including more subtle issues of business strategy; to identify and analyze the legal issues involved; and to craft a creative approach to the dispute that brings out the best in the facts and law for our clients. In many cases, this analysis allows clients to take strategic positions that allow them to resolve litigation without trial, or even resolve disputes without resorting to litigation. However, where litigation becomes necessary, we take a back seat to no one in our ability to drive the litigation and trial process towards a successful judicial outcome. Whether it is a fast-paced injunction or more prolonged litigation, our Litigation Services Group has the experience and knowledge of the courtroom to serve as compelling and tenacious advocates for our clients’ positions. Our litigators move forcefully – whether we represent a plaintiff or a defendant – to take the upper hand in a dispute and move it forward swiftly, decisively and effectively.

When litigation becomes necessary or unavoidable, clients need attorneys who never lose sight of the business needs of the client and operate at all times with those needs, and not their own, as their highest priority. The Litigation Services Group of Sherrard, German & Kelly is committed to helping clients achieve the best business result possible in every case – in and out of the courtroom.
