Business Litigation

A company’s business operations are often complex. We help counsel devise a strategy that will educate and persuade jurors.

A company’s business operations are often complex—we help counsel devise a strategy that will educate and persuade jurors.

Business litigation requires unique strategic decision-making by counsel. How do you teach factfinders the specific business environments in which the events of the case played out, and which rendered a client’s actions appropriate? In a case where it is impossible to litigate everything, where do you focus your energies? How much do you feature the “people” aspect of the case, and how much do you feature the “business”? Our jury consultants help you make these strategic decisions, our graphics consultants help you communicate the strategy of choice, and our presentation consultants make it all come alive at hearings and at trial.

“I’ve been working with DOAR for probably 20 years, and I go back to them time and time again. I know that the people that I’m going to work with there are going to invest themselves into my case. They take the time to understand the case, the documents, and the deposition excerpts that I’m likely to use and why I’m using them.  They become a complete part of the trial team.”

Our Services

Research

Pre-trial research is invaluable in making strategic decisions about the best path forward. In discussions and deliberations, research participants distill the aspects of the case most important to them. Focus groups can be conducted early and often to define and validate trial strategy. Mock trials further test the strategy, integrating key documentary evidence and witness testimony in a verdict-driven context. The understanding of potential case outcomes then informs decisions about final trial strategy and/or settlement.

Graphics Consulting & Design

Graphics are essential for summarizing the massive amounts of data underlying business litigation, and for supporting expert testimony.

Evidence Presentation

Factfinders in business litigation expect and rely on highly sophisticated evidence presentation, and DOAR’s Presentation Consultants exceed those expectations. In DE Chancery Court and in all other federal and state courts, consultants organize the repository of evidence and present deposition videos, interactive timelines, summary charts, and documentary evidence quickly and reliably.


International Arbitration
A growing trend in international arbitrations has led to a record-setting caseload over the past year. For decades, DOAR has supported arbitration hearings worldwide, whether in-person or virtually.
