Unlike insurance based matters, commercial trials are often the most challenging for the client, not the attorneys. In the pay-as-you-go game, the winner is often the party who has--or is willing to spend--the most money on litigation expense. You can perform heroic feats of legal expertise and strategy only to discover that your client has, at the critical moment, run out of funds---or lost the nerve to commit more---to the enterprise at hand. Its frustrating because you could actually win the case, but your client doesn't want to spend the necessary expense associated with trial. And your business model precludes the possibility of your working for free.


We have had considerable---sometimes spectacular---success in leveling the playing field and bringing these matters to a successful resolution. And while these cases unquestionably require greater care in determining those which will be accepted for trial, we have taken more than we have declined over the years.
