Finding Creative Solutions For Complex Intellectual Problems

Persuasive Intervention When Litigation Goes Critical

The complexities of high-stakes civil and commercial litigation can be overwhelming. There are moments in the course of trial preparation when a client or legal team may feel the need for a fresh perspective from an experienced litigator. There are also rare occurrences when unavoidable circumstances can force lead counsel to withdraw even though trial is imminent.

Having litigated complex cases at a high level for more than 35 years, I have the knowledge, skill and experience to assist during moments of crisis and remedy problems that might otherwise derail a case. At Fergus, A Law Office, I can assist litigants and their legal teams when they need someone with my skill set at a critical moment.

Consultation And Lead Counsel Services For Complex Litigation

A crisis presents both danger and opportunity. When circumstances arise that cast doubt on your case, it’s often helpful to step back and do a reappraisal of its key elements. I assist clients and their legal teams in assessing the merits of their overall litigation strategy and isolated tactics. I have experience evaluating cases set for trial and providing a second opinion as to the risks and benefits of going forward.

You may not get the answer you expect, but you will get an experience-based evaluation of the strengths and weaknesses of your case. Under appropriate (and extraordinary) circumstances, I can also step in as lead trial counsel. Not every attorney is willing to make a quick study and get up to speed on short notice to “right the ship,” but I have proven myself capable on numerous occasions.

Experienced Counsel When You Need It Most

Fergus, A Law Office, places a premium on the ethical practice of the law. Therefore, any intervention into ongoing civil or commercial litigation where a client is already represented must pass strict scrutiny. The ideal circumstances for my participation are when client and counsel agree that my contribution may help them to be successful.

My interest in assuming any role in ongoing litigation is to help ensure that a meritorious case has the best fighting chance at a positive outcome. I am happy to confer with litigants and legal teams that think my mix of experience and skill can enhance their prospects for success.
