At Heyman Enerio Gattuso & Hirzel LLP, we often handle high-stakes, bet-the-company litigation. Litigation is an adversarial process that requires strategic thinking and preparedness. As the ancient Chinese warrior-philosopher Sun Tzu said in his treatise Art of War, “The victorious warrior first wins and then seeks battle; the defeated warrior first battles and then seeks victory.”
While no attorney can guarantee results, we will develop a case strategy that is designed to achieve the highest chance of success and then execute that strategy zealously and efficiently from the commencement of the case through trial and appeal. According to Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business: the firm’s rise to prominence in a short time is a testament to the “quality and hard work of its name partners.” Sources Say: “This boutique can go head to head with anybody.”
We do not believe in fighting for fighting’s sake, however. Litigation can be costly, and it is not our goal to consume the value of an enterprise with legal fees. As Sun Tzu also said, “The supreme art of war is to win without fighting.” As part of our overall case strategy, we strive to maximize the prospects of settlement on terms favorable to our clients as early as possible in the litigation process.
