Barton attorneys frequently are called upon by national organizations to present programs for in-house and outside counsel on best practices for efficiently managing litigation. Our progressive mediation and alternative dispute resolution practice continues to grow with significant assignments to the panels of mediators in some of the highest profile cases of our current day.
We are zealous advocates and we are counselors. We develop a deep understanding of our clients and partner with them to identify risk and implement practices and processes to avoid or mitigate liability and litigation. We offer in-house training programs to our clients and take a proactive approach to reviewing clients’ business practices, contracts and relationships to avoid or reduce the incidents of litigation whenever possible.
We strive to help our clients resolve their business disputes pragmatically; however litigation is an inevitable part of doing business in a competitive business and financial world. When litigation is unavoidable, Barton’s business-minded litigation team joins forces with our clients to aggressively pursue and protect their rights. Early case assessments and client strategy sessions play a crucial role in framing a case for successful disposition. Protecting and promoting our clients’ business, financial and reputational well-being is our number one priority.
