Making the Case
It's surprising just how often disputes involve money matters, with financial and tax information or business practices at their heart.
The involvement of an experienced financial professional—with strong analytical and communications skills and the ability to apply them in the context of a legal dispute—can make all the difference.
We work hand-in-hand with Seattle’s legal community to assist in all stages of litigation and dispute resolution—from strategy formulation and forensic investigation to court testimony and settlement negotiations.
