Stevens & Lee’s litigators are problem-solvers who deliver efficient, desired outcomes to clients facing disputes. We provide clarity, focus and strategic vision to our clients from day one of our representation, with an emphasis on client satisfaction and client protection. Our litigation approach stresses early case assessment and a full understanding of client goals. We bring industry-specific knowledge of the law, trial expertise and outstanding dispute resolution and expense management strategies to clients who need guidance and execution. Never do we seek simply to “manage” or “navigate” the litigation process. Recognizing that clients are focused on the ultimate result, we partner with them to reach their desired goals from the inception of any dispute.
Stevens & Lee’s litigation team delivers value to clients in pre-litigation matters, internal and external investigations, regulatory disputes, arbitration claims and all manner of state and federal court litigation. We litigate and try cases for our clients nationwide with an emphasis on client service, a comprehensive understanding of our client’s business and industries, and strategic planning for the efficient achievement of successful client outcomes.
While it is often in our clients’ best interest to resolve litigation early, we have found that our clients receive the best settlement when our opposition knows that we are first and foremost trial lawyers who are ready, willing and able to try a case.
Our litigation team is led by Tom Henefer, Stacey Scrivani and Bill Thornton who have over 75 years of collective experience in complex commercial litigation matters, including Director and Officer Liability cases, ERISA, Fiduciary and Insurance litigation, and Securities Litigation and Life Insurance Product disputes.
Client-Focused and Cost-Effective Representation
Our team brings industry knowledge and litigation savvy to every type of business dispute. We represent diverse business clients, including Fortune 500 companies; large financial services entities; health care providers; large and middle market manufacturing, distribution and services companies; corporate managers; shareholders and owners; and smaller businesses facing significant commercial disputes. Because we are an industry-focused law firm with access to multidisciplinary professionals from our full-service platform, we are able to provide an added level of client service by drawing upon the skills and knowledge of both our industry-trained lawyers and our non-lawyer professionals from our affiliated businesses.
At Stevens & Lee, we align our interests with our clients through favorable rate structures, value-based alternative fee arrangements, efficient staffing and technology. Understanding how expensive litigation can be, we provide first-team representation while employing expense-management strategies to minimize costs.
For certain large scale matters, our Litigation Finance and Alternative Funding Group helps our clients arrange funding for highly complex, expert-intensive and costly litigation to put them on equal financial footing with deep-pocketed opponents.
