Complex litigation often involves numerous parties, voluminous documents and witnesses, unsettled legal issues, litigation in multiple jurisdictions, coordination with government regulators, and other factors that combine to produce a high-risk environment. The demands on the client and on counsel can intensify in the class action or multidistrict litigation contexts.
Sophisticated businesses need experienced counsel to navigate these deeper waters. Lawyers must be able to manage the litigation process efficiently, and must identify, analyze, and present facts and legal issues to opposing counsel and to the court in an organized and persuasive way.
KRCL offers defendants a midsize law firm choice without sacrificing the deep bench that is often needed in complex litigation proceedings. KRCL’s complex litigation practice has developed a solid reputation both inside and outside of the courtroom:
- Chambers and Partners reported that “[t]he group is fast, effective and straightforward, and the client’s agenda is its agenda.”
- The Eastern District of Texas, denying class treatment in favor of a bank, noted KRCL’s approach to defending against class certification: “the Court agrees with Defendant that Plaintiff has failed to show how individual issues will not overwhelm this case . . . . Moreover, Defendant has submitted a detailed and comprehensive predominance analysis to show the many individualized issues implicated by Plaintiff’s claims.” Finley v. Washington Mut. Bank, F.A., No. 4:07-CV-0225, 2008 WL 2008850 (E.D. Tex. May 08, 2008).
