Consider us your in-house counsel. We manage litigation so you can focus on your patients.
Avoiding litigation is our top priority.
Litigation is stressful and expensive, and we work hard to help our clients avoid lawsuits. By implementing detailed policies and procedures to govern your employment standards and privacy practices, maintaining properly formed corporate entities, and ensuring that agreements are memorialized in contracts, many lawsuits can be avoided. But sometimes, litigation becomes necessary to resolve a dispute, whether that's with a patient or a business associate.
Litigation managers, not litigators.
Partner Connor Jackson brings complex litigation experience to the firm, having represented large corporations and insurance companies in high-dollar lawsuits. This experience makes him a valuable asset to our clients involved in or contemplating litigation. From hiring and managing litigation or trial counsel, to minimizing the impact of litigation on your practice operations, to coaching you through the process, he collaborates with clients to simplify the entire experience.
How will we help?
Jackson LLP's litigation management services reduce the impact of litigation on your day-to-day work by streamlining the process. Because litigation attorneys are typically more expensive than Jackson LLP's attorneys, this relationship also tends to save you money! Typical litigation management services include:
- Identifying and retaining qualified litigation or trial counsel.
- Becoming familiar with your practice's policies and procedures governing employment, privacy, and treatment. Creating new policies and procedures to fill gaps in existing practice management, thus minimizing the risk of future litigation.
- Reviewing all pertinent documentation and evidence, and providing immediate evidence-retention guidance.
- Collaborating with litigation counsel about strategy, monitoring expenses, and managing the litigation process.
- Simplifying the litigation experience to minimize its impact on your practice. For example, after litigation counsel attends a hearing in your case, we'll get a full briefing of the details and collaborate as to future strategy. We'll then be your point-of-contact by updating you, answering your questions, and communicating your concerns to the litigation counsel.
- Providing first-round drafts of briefs to litigation counsel for review and edits. Editing litigation counsel's briefs to ensure congruence with your goals and concerns.
