Our Firm’s In-House Advocacy and Preparation Saves You Money

How does our firm stand out with its in-house advocacy?

When it comes to legal representation, our firm stands out in a crowded field by embracing a distinctive and efficient approach to case management. One of our key differentiators is our commitment to conducting almost all of our work in-house, ensuring comprehensive preparation and advocacy for our clients. While many other firms routinely brief counsel for court proceedings, our firm leverages an internal system that offers substantial benefits to our clients via in-house advocacy.

Our unique system revolves around a “first and second chair” approach. In this model, our experienced senior lawyers assume the role of first chair, leading cases with unmatched expertise and strategic insight. Meanwhile, our talented associates fill the second chair, providing invaluable support and gaining practical experience under the mentorship of their senior counterparts. This structure mirrors the efficient style of top U.S. law firms and often eliminates the need for external barristers. However, we acknowledge the specialized expertise of barristers in specific matters and leverage their skills when necessary.

How does an in-house advocacy approach save you money?

This in-house approach offers significant savings to our clients, streamlining the legal process and minimizing additional fees often associated with external briefings. It also ensures a cohesive strategy from preparation to court advocacy, as all aspects of the case remain under the purview of our dedicated team. By keeping everything within one firm, we facilitate quick and simple transfer of information, clear understanding of instructions, and seamless communication throughout the legal process.

Clients who choose our firm benefit from personalized attention, with their cases managed entirely within our organization. Our integrated approach not only reduces costs but also enhances the client experience, providing clarity, efficiency, and exceptional legal representation all under one roof. This unique system exemplifies our commitment to delivering top-tier legal services with the utmost professionalism and care.
