Litigation is expensive. Worse, much of the process is outside your control. Even the alternative -- arbitration -- has become a private litigation, except that the parties bear the cost of not just the attorneys, but the arbitrator, too.

The good news is that you can take steps to manage the process and keep costs to a minimum -- without sacrificing quality. Please join us for a Foley Executive Briefing Series program, which will feature a discussion focused on how to effectively accomplish these competing goals.

The program will cover:

  • How to anticipate and budget costs
  • How to incentivize efficiency
  • How to handle unanticipated changes
  • How to minimize the costs and impact of electronic discovery
  • How to properly take advantage of alternative dispute resolution
  • Q&A

The informal session will be moderated by Foley Partner Russell Beck and Senior Counsel Stephen D. Riden, both of the firm's Commercial Litigation and Intellectual Property Litigation practices, along with Associate Michael Thompson of the firm's Commercial Litigation practice. Mr. Beck and Mr. Riden each have extensive experience litigating cases and counseling clients about cost management. Mr. Thompson has experience working with clients managing the discovery process and other litigation tasks.

Fit the Bill: Managing the Cost of Litigation While Maintaining Work Quality is part of the Foley Executive Briefing Series. Learn more about programs in the series at Foley.com/FEBS.
