Kenney & Sams recognizes that litigation can be an expensive undertaking made worthwhile only through achievement of a positive result. Accordingly, we approach litigation differently than many other law firms: we outline, at the inception, our comprehensive evaluation of the case and our strategy to dispose of it efficiently and effectively, whether through dispositive motion, favorable settlement, or trial. Working closely with our clients and, if applicable, their general counsel, corporate law department, or risk managers, we customize a litigation budget and litigation plan for each case. This allows our clients to make informed decisions about the risks and benefits of the proposed litigation. Our approach is simple but effective – we prepare the case for victory at trial. In most cases, this approach forces a favorable, cost effective settlement. In cases that do not settle, our clients are well prepared for trial.
Our attorneys have achieved the following results in notable, and sometimes ground breaking business litigation:
- Recovery of a $6 million settlement in business litigation arising from the failure of a retail real estate development project in Northern New England.
- Successful defense of contractors and design professionals on the Central Artery/Tunnel Project.
- Substantial experience representing business clients in consumer protection claims and commercial litigation involving a wide variety of contract litigation and business torts.
- Extensive experience in all forms of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), including mediation, case evaluation, and arbitration.
