Our success in defending hospitals and medical professionals is founded upon several key factors.
Most importantly, we have the willingness and demonstrated ability to go to trial and dedicate the time, resources and energy to serve each of our clients’ interests.
We also have a wealth of experience in the medical field. For over 27 years, we have represented a variety of clients in the health care sector, including one of Utah’s largest health care organizations, both in legal and non-legal matters. This experience provides a deep understanding of the industry and a sound background from which to develop litigation, trial, and resolution strategies that take into account the technical considerations our healthcare clients live with every day. Also, this enables our team to communicate effectively with professionals in medicine, the sciences, and other areas to prepare for trial and to develop persuasive briefs and courtroom demonstratives. We also utilize this unique insight to successfully conduct internal investigations, early case assessments, pre-trial negotiations, and counseling to avoid future litigation.
We respect our clients’ desire to achieve efficient and successful resolution of disputes and our litigation strategies are driven by our clients' business strategies and interests. We are committed to providing advocacy and advice that best promotes our clients' goals.
