Serving Your Business and Commercial Needs

NNA is committed to developing litigation plans that provide advocacy that is both cost-effective and value-centered. Efficiency in operations is a firm-wide commitment, both in staffing cases and in carrying out discrete tasks throughout the litigation cycle. We pursue value-centered litigation by working with the client at every stage of the case, from pre-litigation planning through resolution, to identify strategic choices and exercise judgment, setting litigation goals that advance the client's real needs in resolving the dispute.

We pride ourselves on our trial and advocacy skills and ability to manage every case with a trial-centered litigation plan, while keeping sight of opportunities to position a case for resolution at an earlier stage on terms satisfactory to the client. Sometimes that means a timely resort to mediation; sometimes it means productive settlement negotiations with our adversaries when the litigation moment is right; and sometimes that means vigorously handling the case through verdict and appeal.
