Client-focused Strategies for Resolving Disputes

HKW’s civil litigation team has considerable trial experience, and its practice group leader, Doug Kertscher, has served as lead counsel in over 40 trials. However, we are mindful that in many instances our client wants to move through the litigation as quickly and as cost-effectively as possible. Our goal is our client’s goal and we take advantage of every opportunity to strengthen their position. One example is to take advantage of the infrequently-used Georgia law and Superior Court rules that allow cases to be stipulated quickly to trial calendars. This speeds up the process and allows our clients to get back to what they do best.

In addition, we are selective in which cases we take so that we can devote the necessary time and resources to each matter to produce a successful outcome. This means a faster, more cost-efficient result for the client. It also means better client service: we believe that simple things like returning telephone calls promptly, keeping the client informed with regular updates, and setting (and keeping) reasonable progress goals for the litigation.
