       Having a single partner with the full toolset enables easy oversight/management and ensures a consistent finished product that is greater than the sum of its individual parts.

 

Our research shows that success in litigation is always dependent on the interaction of three factors: the timely organization, accurate evaluation, and persuasive presentation of information. That seems elementary, as everyone knows you need to get organized, do a good job evaluating the information, and present it as persuasively as possible. However, few have a plan, a consistent process for achieving these three objectives.

 

Take getting organized, the first step upon which the others are necessarily dependent. Most would define organization as the ability to quickly find important documents or information. That is mere order, which is but one basic element of organization. Organization means not only can you find the information you are looking for, but that you can gain intelligence about the information–that is, its meaning–within the context of, and in relation to, the rest of the information, as well as its meaning to other members of your team. You are organized when you know what each piece of information means, where it fits in your case and how it affects the meaning of all the other information in the case.

 

Do you have a plan, a process, for achieving that? We do, and that plan leads inevitably to more timely and accurate evaluation. And, more timely and accurate evaluation inevitably leads to more persuasive presentations and better outcomes.

 

Best Evidence supports corporate clients,

major insurance companies and law firms

in litigation across the United States through

a multifaceted, multidisciplinary strategy

consisting of a cost-effective discovery,

settlement, and trial toolset that addresses

these three crucial determinants of success

individually and holistically. Having a single

partner with the full toolset enables easy

oversight/management and ensures a consistent finished product that is greater than the sum of its individual parts. Applying the logic of simulation (the scientific basis for jury research), and the efficiency of information technology to risk assessment/mitigation and collaboration, we consistently help achieve favorable results for our clients in litigation.

 

Our multifaceted protocol approach to litigation identifies suitable steps to be taken based on potential exposure and budget. This ensures that the financial outlay is kept to a minimum in all instances, with only the riskiest or most important cases proceeding through the entire protocol.

 

We further increase the value of this approach to improving our clients’ litigation profiles by aggregating the results from our research, as well as results from actual mediations and trials, into a proprietary online database for disseminating lessons learned system-wide. Not only has this methodology proven extremely effective, it is applicable to a wide range of venues and case types, and is more logical and cost-effective than the piecemeal approach offered by other firms

 

The focus of our approach is on:

 

  • More timely and accurate quantification, evaluation, and mitigation of risk;

  • Improved team communication and information sharing; and

  • Use of aggregated results (lessons learned) to develop consistently effective approaches and prevent strategic errors from reoccurring.

 

Clients who use a variety of vendors on a case-by-case basis to perform individual litigation support services are unable to consistently manage the process across cases and share lessons learned with other members of the team. Our services, when combined, eliminate the limitations inherent in such a decentralized approach. For maximum effectiveness and value, our services are designed to be utilized earlier rather than later, strategically rather than tactically, and proactively rather than defensively.

 

You are organized when you know what each piece of information means, where it fits in your case and how it affects all the other information in the case.
