Barack Ferrazzano Kirschbaum & Nagelberg LLP
Steve has the kind of meaningful trial experience that is rare among business litigators. His experience benefits clients at all stages of a business dispute, from the very beginning all the way through trial.
Steve draws on his skills to counsel clients before litigation, helping them position their case in a way that maximizes the likelihood of a positive result. Many times, the result is a business resolution in which the expense and burdens of litigation are avoided.
When litigation is unavoidable, Steve applies his experience and ability to identify key issues to get cases focused at the outset. By getting a case focused, he keeps costs controlled and maximizes the likelihood of a favorable resolution, whether through settlement, pre-trial decision, or trial.
Always a Business Counselor
Steve understands that his clients are not in the business of litigating cases, and the burdens of litigation detract from achieving business goals. Accordingly, he works to minimize the burdens of litigation as much as possible for his clients and to help identify opportunities for resolution short of trial.
Steve also knows litigation is often unpredictable, and it is critical for clients to understand the process, the risks, and the potential outcomes. He accordingly draws on his vast experience with business disputes to advise clients through the litigation, including helping them balance the risks in deciding when and how to resolve a case.
