Practice/Industry Group Overview
Adams and Reese has a reputation for providing quality litigation services can be traced to its origin as an insurance defense firm. Many of the firm's most experienced trial lawyers handle casualty and insurance cases. Today, we act as strategic advisors to our clients to avoid litigation where possible, implement alternative dispute measures when feasible, settle cases upon economic grounds, if appropriate and mount a vigorous defense when required.
The quality of our work results from a simple habit. We start by listening to our clients, and we formulate our dispute strategy from their feedback. We access the value of each litigation matter and evaluate its significance in the overall scheme of the client's business. We then determine how best to cost-effectively staff the matter in compliance with carrier and client guidelines. We further determine whether technology will assist in helping us achieve the best results possible. This commitment has built a strong and lasting relationship between Adams and Reese and our clients.
