Choosing the Right Litigation Team

Messner Reeves LLP’s litigation team has a wealth of complex civil and commercial litigation expertise. Still, beyond experience, reputation, and accolades, finding a legal team in tune with your company’s culture, mission, and methodology is essential. Choosing the right litigation team is crucial to obtaining the best possible outcome in a corporate lawsuit and preventing litigation from occurring in the first place.

When looking for a legal partner that best suits your company, there are a few other key factors to consider:

Industry Knowledge

Having a deep understanding of the industry-specific legal issues, regulation nuances, and common challenges a company faces better positions attorneys to find the best defense and develop policies and practices that prevent future litigation. Messner Reeves LLP works with clients across diverse industries with the depth of years of experience to draw on. We regularly provide legal counsel and representation to publicly and privately held businesses such as banks, manufacturers, accounting firms, insurance companies, construction companies, and energy firms.

Relevant Trial Experience

Beyond just years in business, an effective legal team should have specific trial experience – in jury and bench trials, appeals, and administrative proceedings – and licenses across multiple jurisdictions. Our trial lawyers practice in state and federal courts and have extensive experience with government contracts, claims & disputes, labor & employment issues, and mergers & acquisitions. Drawing on our collective experience, we can help companies, locally and nationally, ensure regulatory compliance and recommend best practices that mitigate litigation risk.

Appellate Experience

When it comes to appealing a decision, corporations need well-versed attorneys who can help make early, informed decisions and best posture their case during the trial to maximize their chances of success at the appellate level. Messner Reeves LLP’s appellate team has strengths beyond traditional appellate representation, with experience in assisting trial counsel with directed verdict motions, jury instructions and post-trial briefings, and a wide range of other matters. The appellate and trial attorneys work closely as a team; several are former judicial clerks, bringing additional perspectives and knowledge to each case.

Broad Resources

The ability to draw upon the experience and expertise of an award-winning, nationally acclaimed firm with diversified practice areas broadens the level of counsel a litigation team can provide. It’s also more cost-effective and efficient for professional clients, as law firms like Messner Reeves have expertise across industries and practice areas to apply to their matters. Not only does this help companies deal with active litigation issues, but it can also set them up for better protection from future lawsuits by providing access to multiple perspectives and guidance on policies and compliance.
