Whether you are a Fortune 500 corporation, a sole proprietorship, or anything in between, Godfrey & Kahn’s Litigation Group can assemble the right team to fill your individual litigation needs.
In today’s complex economy, business litigation often presents a challenge to a company’s ongoing operations and imperils its financial security. It is imperative that the costs and risks of the litigation process do not adversely affect a company’s assets or impede its ability to achieve business goals. Godfrey & Kahn’s Litigation Practice attorneys, having a vast array of experience in federal, state, and international litigation and arbitration forums, never lose sight of their primary goal: protecting a client’s economic best interests.
To that end, Godfrey & Kahn’s more than 40 litigators employ a cost-effective approach to litigation that begins with a thorough understanding of the client’s operations and the commercial realities that affect them. We ensure that cases are appropriately staffed with the best-suited attorneys, and we avoid the unnecessary costs associated with multiple attorneys performing the same tasks on a case. Our litigators understand that a favorable outcome in litigation is one that best serves the client’s overall interests, and not one achieved by an expensive, burdensome process that itself impedes the client’s economic vitality or business objectives.
Ultimately, however, our litigators are trial attorneys, and they understand that the best results for a client are achieved when the client and our attorneys form a team that is prepared to try a case. This not only leads to the best result in the courtroom, but the best negotiating position, and the best settlement opportunities, throughout the case.
Godfrey & Kahn’s litigators have the experience and track record to effectively implement this approach. Included among our trial lawyers are former state and federal prosecutors, a former general counsel to a Fortune 200 corporation, the former chairman of the National Association of Attorneys General Task Force on Antitrust, and numerous former federal and state judicial law clerks. Our litigators have extensive experience in all aspects of litigation in state and federal trial and appellate courts in Wisconsin and across the country, as well as numerous administrative agencies and international tribunals.
