Diverse Client Base
We represent 60 percent of the Fortune 100 companies in connection with their commercial litigation matters. Through working with our clients, we have developed strength in a wide range of manufacturing and service industries including automotive, banking, biotechnology, chemicals, computer hardware and software, electronics, energy, entertainment, financial services, insurance, media, medical devices, oil and petroleum, pharmaceuticals, sports, technology, and telecommunications.
The size of our litigation group and our litigation dockets has enabled us to invest heavily in advanced litigation support technology and to hire well-trained practitioners to operate it. This technology not only yields large cost savings, it also enables us to marshal, review and present evidence in ways never before possible. Our cadre of lawyers also includes several of the nation’s foremost leaders on electronic discovery, including partners, associates and staff attorneys who specialize in e-discovery practice and can identify and advise on e-discovery and related technology issues for large corporations.
A Trial-Ready Approach
Bingham takes a “trial-ready” approach to litigation, meaning we approach each case as if it will be tried. We are very mindful that most cases are resolved well before trial, but by our “trial-ready” approach, we are able to focus on key issues, develop targeted strategies, and most efficiently and cost-effectively represent our clients. Such an approach also allows us to assist clients in exploring and achieving early resolutions consistent with their business and strategic goals. In the event cases do proceed to trial, we also rely upon the most advanced technology to assist our efforts and utilize both in-house and outside trial consultants as appropriate.
