When should you bring in Phillip to help?
The sooner the better is the easy answer. Early work on a case can streamline discovery, reduce expert expenses, and increase the likelihood of settlement. However, it is not uncommon for firms to wait until late in the case to hire us, sometimes after discovery is closed and a trial date is pending. The opportunity to see the opposition’s case before trial can help shift away from a losing strategy to one the opposition is not prepared for and is persuasive.
Scheduling generally is easiest when we have enough time to block out the calendars for Phillip and anyone on your trial team that you want involved. Most of the time 60 days is enough, but sometimes we can get together more quickly. Call as soon as possible, there’s no charge for a phone conference to see if this is a good fit for you and your case.
