Significant lawsuits can have severe consequences to businesses of any size and even threaten a company’s ability to survive. These cases, know as “bet-the-company” litigation, are high stakes situations that can cause irreparable damage to a company’s structure and reputation. While minimizing risk and exposure are the first priorities for companies facing litigation, cases can arise where managing risk and exposure isn’t enough and a company’s viability is put on the line. Bet-the-company cases require a different type of analysis of risk beyond the day-to-day litigation. They are complicated, and many times involve multiple parties and complex discovery. When a businesses existence is on the line, they need the counsel of experienced trial lawyers who know how to manage a case effectively.
