Complex Case Management
When it comes to litigation, there is no such thing as a simple case. However, there are a category of particularly complex or large cases that present unique organizational challenges.
U.S. Legal Support’s Complex Case Management team specializes in delivering the unique support, logistical oversight and expertise firms handling these matters require.
Complex cases come in every conceivable form and involve a wide range of topics, including antitrust, securities, environmental, pharmaceuticals, commercial and residential construction, intellectual property and business disputes and conflicts. Parties find themselves scattered around the country (or globe) attempting to orchestrate very large, ongoing matters that involve hundreds — and sometimes thousands — of depositions with unique logistical and technical needs. For over two decades, we’ve been allowing counsel and firms to focus on their work by keeping these major cases logistically on track.
We have handled complex cases for many of the world’s largest law firms and some of the biggest, most intricate, sensitive and visible cases in history. A partial list of these includes the World Trade Center cleanup litigation; Wells Fargo multidistrict litigation; the Purdue Pharma opioid matters; the Millennium Tower cases in San Francisco; the Major League Baseball steroid investigation, litigation over water supplies in various municipalities throughout the country; the derailment of a MetroLink commuter train in California and cases involving concussions among NFL players. When the case really matters and everything is on the line, the world’s leading law firms rely on U.S. Legal Support.
No matter how enormous the case, our clients enjoy a single point of contact. The process begins with the assignment of an experienced case manager who oversees a dedicated, experienced team. This manager is responsible for every facet of the logistical organization ensuring that the parties get what they need by tapping into our network of resources around the country. At the most basic level, this includes coordination of deposition calendars, sourcing a team of specialized court reporters and videographers, management of transcript and exhibit libraries and accommodating technical needs of parties participating remotely. Large, complex cases require these services on a massive scale and present enormous logistical challenges. Our proven ability to consistently and reliably execute is what sets us apart.
We take particular pride in handling unique or especially demanding requests or situations. For example, we coordinated testimony presented in a hotel in Pakistan that was piped into a U.S. District Court in Florida, so an American judge could observe the witness live and in real time. In another case, a client needed several massive pieces of building material as an exhibit in construction litigation. We preserved it, handled shipping, and when it was needed in court, we had it ready.
At U.S. Legal Support, we are fiercely committed to client service and satisfaction. And when it comes to complex litigation, our experience, team and technology make things simpler, and our clients’ work – and results – better. Or, to put it a little more succinctly – we succeed by helping our clients succeed.
Victory in either bringing or defending an asbestos case is always a matter of degrees. There are rarely big surprises. Instead, success demands the slow, patient and thorough accumulation of facts, as well as exercising the utmost professionalism, efficiency and care in depositions. U.S. Legal Support can help you do both.
