The general who advances without coveting fame and retreats without fearing disgrace, whose only thought is to protect his country and do good service for his sovereign, is the jewel of the kingdom.
Knowing how much your case is “worth” – understanding your company’s potential liability – is essential to properly evaluate settlement. And litigation strategy hinges upon it. Yet most in-house lawyers rely exclusively upon trial counsel to provide this case assessment. Unfortunately, the frontline of the battlefield doesn’t usually afford the best perspective on the fight.
Cobb & Counsel provides an independent and objective exposure analysis, unfiltered by pride or passion, and devoid of self-interest. Before you recommend another settlement, make sure you know exactly what you are paying for.
Cobb & Counsel ensures that clients identify their business goals in order to develop strategies aimed at achieving those goals, not merely some abstract litigation “result.” Because most high-exposure cases are resolved through mediation, Cobb & Counsel helps clients develop and exploit favorable evidence early to create leverage and achieve cost-effective and advantageous settlements.
If your doctor recommends surgery, you seek a second opinion. When your lawyer recommends settlement, you should do the same. Think of us as a second set of eyes to review your options under a microscope, and with a telescope, to ensure that both potential liability and potential defenses have been fully examined and explored.
