Conflict is part of life and part of the competitive business world. However, it is critical to remember that litigation is NOT a career path, and it is not a corporate strategy.
The overwhelming majority of Complaints filed never make it to trial. Some estimates are that 99.5% of disputes do NOT go to trial. Of course, some people just like to fight, and for those few, we’re happy to oblige on behalf of our clients. However, for the overwhelming majority of disputes entering the legal system, the parties are better served by reaching a settlement — a fair, reasonable, full-value settlement that factors in the time-value of money and litigation risk — sooner rather than later.
Adishian Law Group has established a reputation throughout the State of California for being exceptional settlement attorneys. To be clear, by “settlement” we don’t mean folding, walking away or accepting pennies on the dollar. We mean a settlement that gives fair, reasonable, full-value to the parties’ claims and defenses factoring in the time-value of money and litigation risk; a settlement that allows everyone to move forward with their business rather than continue to litigate.
In fact, we have taken on a number of clients whose prior attorneys were unable to generate any value for the client’s claim, or actually told the client that they were simply “out of luck.” In other cases, the client was not sure if they had a claim, or simply may not have been able to engage in litigation to vindicate their rights in a court of law.
In one case, we represented a public company executive in claims against the Company. The client would not be able to litigate the claims. Within four months we negotiated a mid-six figure settlement for our client via attorney-attorney negotiation, all without the fees, costs, risk and time associated with litigation. We never filed a complaint.
In another case, we negotiated a mid-six figure settlement for our client via attorney-attorney negotiation, all without the fees, costs, risk and time associated with litigation. Again, we never filed a complaint.
