As a result of careful planning and efficient attention to detail, the firm is able to provide cost-effective and well-planned representation by keeping the size of our firm modest and organizing support staff in a manner which ensures effective management of complex litigation.
At FMG we understand that clients do not wish to be held financially responsible for bringing a succession of attorneys "up to speed" on a file. Nor do they wish to pay for duplicative work, which may occur when responsibility for a case is shared among attorneys. We assign most cases to a single attorney who has complete supervision of the matter. That attorney is assisted by a team, consisting of a paralegal and other support staff. The exception to this protocol is unusually large or complex cases. In such cases, the supervising attorney maintains responsibility for the case, but is assisted by other lawyers and support staff on an as-needed basis.
Many of our clients have sophisticated in-house legal staff with whom we are always happy to consult. We prefer to use in-house resources to the maximum extent practical, in order to minimize the client's litigation costs.
Although we have available a full complement of seasoned forensic experts in each of our practice areas, we screen the acceptability of those experts with our clients. We believe the litigation process to be a collaborative effort and are ever mindful that, while we are directed to provide the legal support, it is the client's case.
In addition to offering our clients quality representation, our efficiency and focus on litigation goals enables our clients to control their costs. The question of who is responsible for specific litigation is never hard to answer. The division of responsibility within the firm enables and requires supervising attorneys to be intimately familiar with each of the files under their control.
