Fried Frank litigators in the US and Europe represent global corporations and financial institutions in their most challenging, complex and important matters. Our attorneys are active in trial and appellate matters in federal and state courts, and our diverse practice runs the gamut from agency, state, and federal court cases, to grand jury investigations, and arbitrations. We also act on behalf of clients in public-interest issues, frequently pro bono. We approach every representation focused on the client's strategic business objectives, appreciating that litigation is useful to the client only if it is in pursuit of those objectives. Our partners work closely with our clients to identify the key legal and factual issues that are likely to drive the final outcome of the litigation process. We efficiently deploy our resources, assigning lawyers with the requisite expertise and experience.
We also draw upon the expertise of our other practices as the complexity of any business dispute may require. We do not view litigation as an end in itself; thus we constantly evaluate our progress to make certain that the litigation strategies are advancing the client's goals. We believe our approach places us at an advantage to our adversaries in achieving an outstanding result before courts, regulators or whatever tribunal in which we find ourselves. Because our adversaries ultimately come to understand this, we achieve outstanding negotiated results, as well. We believe that our approach also minimizes, to the extent possible, lengthy, unnecessary and expensive pre-trial activity.
