Predictive Analysis

How would an experienced neutral view your case? Are you sensitive to its deficiencies? How can your case presentation be tailored to enhance its equitable appeal?  What are your real damages? Is your settlement posture realistic?

Predictive analysis can take many forms, ranging from case evaluations and advisory opinions, to mock oral arguments and arbitrations. These techniques can be used at any stage of a litigation or arbitration, and can focus on specific issues or the entire case.

Predictive analysis can be done efficiently and quickly. If expedited, it can be completed in a week, and is an excellent method of assessing your case as a mediation, argument or trial date approaches.
