On multi-jurisdictional assignments, we can quickly assemble a team made up of attorneys from across the country whose backgrounds and experience are a good match with the client's needs. The firm's investment in the latest technology and communication tools, including client extranets, enables these cross-office teams to provide seamless representation to our clients from any location.
