Litigation Consulting: When a case is not to the point where an expert needs to be designated, clients and attorneys often benefit from consulting with an expert in order to gain a better understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of their case. Jay offers services in these early stages, allowing the attorney to consider key questions, such as whether or not the case has enough value for litigating, potential settlement value, and often times forming the framework for discovery requests. When we work in this consulting capacity, our communication is covered by the attorney client privilege, so our clients and attorneys are free to discuss trial strategy without the worry of discoverability. This has allowed Jay to add value by performing preliminary analysis to assess the viability of different strategic directions for the case.
