Sussman Shank is the litigation firm of choice for one simple, three-word reason: we try cases. Surprisingly, many litigation teams can’t say that. But in the end, litigation comes down to being ready, willing, and able to go to trial if it’s in our client’s interest. The courtroom is where we do our work, where we excel, and where we get results.
Although our courtroom pedigree is the foundation of our reputation as litigators, we bring much more to the table. Along with being aggressive advocates for our clients, we are also known for our professionalism. Although litigation is always about disputes, we believe that as skilled as we are in the courtroom, ending up there is often a last resort. Outside the courtroom, we excel at problem-solving and devising innovative, effective solutions to seemingly intractable disputes.
We also practice with a bespoke perspective: no two cases are the same, and each is treated as unique, with its own issues, strategy, and approach. We evaluate cases quickly and implement a strategy based on each dispute’s particular facts, risks, and opportunities. We are not cookie cutter lawyers. We see disputes as problems to be solved – whether that’s in the courtroom or outside of it.
And, as a midsized firm, Sussman Shank has a litigation team that’s focused, and provides exceptional personal service. Clients do not get handed off to unknown lawyers, as in large firms. They work with the lawyer they know, and who knows them, their case, and their priorities – from beginning to end.
