Although litigation may be an ultimate forum in which to protect your assets, Christie, Parker & Hale has saved clients millions of dollars by avoiding costly, lengthy, and disruptive litigation. There may be better solutions than taking the opposition to court. We use every available procedural strategy to create early, quick, and economic resolutions in the litigation process, including summary judgment and bifurcation motions.
By collaborating with our clients, we look for an early “settlement moment” to open effective channels for negotiation with our opposition. We adhere to the philosophy that an effective litigation plan demands a settlement strategy. Settlement plans, however, will not detract us from aggressive advocacy in litigation.
If litigation is warranted after exhausting settlement options, Christie, Parker & Hale will employ its full resources to obtaining a favorable outcome. Our firm has the essential combination of in-depth technical knowledge, expertise concerning intellectual property and unfair competition laws, and the necessary courtroom skills for success in complex litigation.
Since its founding in 1954, CPH continues to establish a track record that includes success in the trial courts, appellate courts, and the United States Supreme Court. The firm’s spectrum of cases spans from multi-million dollar complex litigation cases to smaller disputes concerning intellectual property rights, antitrust, contract issues, fraud, and bankruptcy matters.
In addition to litigation, the firm also has deep experience regarding alternative dispute resolution methods, including arbitration and mediation. We will pursue ADR avenues if they are likely to be more cost-effective than traditional litigation.
