“See You in Court” – HKW’s Trial lawyers

hkw-buildingFirst, we have trial lawyers rather than paper-pushing litigators. We are accustomed to arguing to judges and juries and examining witnesses. Pre-trial discovery is merely to help us to craft a winning strategy and not an end to itself. Because of the sophistication of our litigation practice and penchant for taking cases (when necessary) to trial, we often stand toe-to-toe in trial practice with some of the largest law firms in the country. HKW offers the experience of having successfully represented clients in federal and state courts around the country.

“Getting Down to Business” – HKW’s Efficient Approach

We staff our cases and projects for results, consistent with our clients expectations that we operate lean and mean, with an experienced partner typically handling a case with one to two younger lawyers in a supporting role. This approach gives the senior partner hands-on control over the development of the case or project. We oppose layers of lawyers reviewing each other’s work and we oppose having so many people working cases and projects that there is no one who understands all aspects of complex problems our clients need us to address successfully.
