 Getting off on the right foot is critical!

Getting off on the right foot is critical!

Preparing for conflict resolution usually starts long before a summons and complaint are served.  We know how claims arise and where they come from.  We understand how claims are best resolved in your industry (and industries differ a lot).  We can review your critical business documents, your business structure and the work that defines your relationships to put you in the best possible position for dispute resolution – should it ever arise.  But, if conflict does arise you will already be in the best possible position for negotiation and/or litigation.

 Sound litigation management does not always mean going to court.

Sound litigation management does not always mean going to court.

Litigation is always a function of a complex cost/benefit analysis.  Litigation is always expensive.  But, before the conflict even begins to elevate, we will go through a very detailed assessment of your position.   We will help you understand the trade-offs incumbent in an early resolution of the matter, whether through pretrial actions, an ADR method, or an outright settlement.  We won’t accept litigation simply for the sake of litigation.  We don’t have the time for it; and no one has the money for it. 


Whether its dispute resolution, contract issues, performance standards, or a damage claim, the managing partners at Mahoney Lefky can help you cut through the chaff to identify the financial implications of the legal strategies available to you.
