Rizzo & Diersen’s litigation and dispute resolution practice has been a cornerstone of the firm since 1992, and its breadth has grown increasingly ever since. We offer a hands-on philosophy tailored to meet clients’ specific needs. This has resulted in thousands of successful jury and non-jury trials and arbitrations.
We represent both plaintiffs and defendants in commercial litigation/arbitration. Depending on the situation, we may offer a combination of fee arrangements tailored to the case. We also represent plaintiffs on a wide range of personal injury matters in litigation.
Our litigation risk analysis work involves the application of decision analysis to derive an expected value for the case, to identify optimum litigation and/or settlement strategies, and to quantify risks. This methodology breaks a case into its component parts, identifies alternative case evolution pathways and decision alternatives, assigns probabilities to uncertain outcomes, and then quantifies each outcome and the case overall.
We have applied this methodology to assess litigation and settlement strategies associated with breach of contract, class actions, personal injury claims, insurance recovery, de minimis settlements, cost recovery actions, and acquisitions and divestitures.
