Getting Results Quickly

by | Oct 30, 2021 | Firm News |

More often than not, when I speak to a potential new client who is not experienced with business litigation, he or she tells me that they want to get the matter resolved quickly. This is actually code for quickly and inexpensively. There is nothing wrong with having a goal of resolving your case quickly and inexpensively. But unfortunately, it is not always possible to do so, or at least to do so well. It takes two to tango, and if your adversary does not share the same goal of a quick resolution, it will not happen. Or if it does happen, the terms of the resolution may be far less favorable than those that could have been obtained if the litigation had been pursued further. So as a practical matter, when planning a strategy for a quick resolution, you should also develop a long-haul strategy just in case the first approach is unsuccessful.
