Commercial litigation practice approach

The attendant risks and costs of litigation are understandably top-of-mind for company executives and in-house counsel. Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr provides early case assessments to directly address these concerns.

Along with litigation budget estimates, our attorneys also discuss probable outcomes, consider creative litigation strategies, and identify resources warranted for a particular case.

In many matters, the most cost-effective strategy is to use dispositive motions, sometimes early in the case, to decrease long-term discovery costs and either resolve the case or reduce it to a manageable size. Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr attorneys routinely advise clients on ADR options before and during litigation. Our client's desired result remains omnipresent as we seek well-timed opportunities for mediation or other ADR methods that lead to favorable conflict resolution.
