At the Casper Firm, we represent companies in complex commercial cases ranging from breach of contract and fiduciary duty actions to shareholder and partnership disputes; we represent companies and individuals under investigation and facing the risks of prosecution or regulatory action by local, state, and federal authorities; and we represent individuals who have suffered catastrophic injuries.
The “secret sauce” of our success is commitment, creativity, experience, and hard-work. Because all matters are unique, an approach which worked in a prior case, even if it involved the same area of law, may not be the proper, meaning most effective, approach for your case. In every case, we test our decisions and strategy by asking whether we are moving the matter to obtain the client’s ultimate objective as quickly and as cost effectively as possible.
The ability to try a case, before a judge or a jury, is a dying art. Too few cases actually go to trial for most lawyers, even those who bill themselves as litigators, to have tried many, if any, cases to verdict. The lawyers at the Casper Firm have done so on many occasions both in private practice and as government lawyers.
Litigation is every bit as much a matter of management as it is a matter of pre-trial or trial strategy. Effective litigation begins with a clear overall strategy. In handling your case, we will bring decades of experience to bear to carry out the proper strategy.
We undertake each representation with a deep appreciation of the enormous importance of the matter to the client. We take pride in the diversity of our practice and in the results we achieve for our clients. Our specialties are litigation and investigation. We try, arbitrate, mediate, and negotiate cases in the mid-Atlantic region and across the country. We "go deep" on the law and the facts.
Investigations are conducted promptly, efficiently, and thoroughly. Litigation matters are prepared in the expectation of a trial or some alternative merits proceeding. While it is true that the majority of cases resolve prior to trial, the best - indeed, the only - way to achieve the maximum settlement for a plaintiff, or most favorable resolution for a defendant, is to prepare thoroughly for trial. The firm's litigation opponents know of our capacity and willingness to try and to win tough cases, for our record in this regard is well-established and widely recognized. This reputation gives the firm's clients meaningful leverage in pre-trial settlement discussions.
