Training/Education and Other Client Services
With a reputation for realistically evaluating liability and damage exposure, achieving early settlements and being formidable trial lawyers, M&C’s lawyers are uniquely situated to assist insurers and risk-managers in a variety of roles.
M&C attorneys assist insurers and reinsurers in conducting audits of claim files and providing evaluation regarding liability and damage exposure, as well as advice re coverage, defense and settlement strategy.
Coordinating, National, Regional and Local Counsel Services
Over the years the firm has served in each of these roles for clients facing multi-jurisdictional matters. The services provided are determined by the issues in dispute and the needs of the clients, but often include work related to discovery, pleadings, motion work and trial assistance.
Expert Witness Services
Several of our more senior-level attorneys have served as expert witnesses regarding issues pertinent to their particular practice areas, and are available to provide expert consultation or testimony.
Experienced M&C attorneys are available to monitor litigation and trials, providing businesses and insurers with attorney-client privileged advice and assisting with defense, trial and/or settlement evaluation and strategy.
Pre-Appellate Trial Related Services
M&C’s appellate and law and motion specialists assist clients and their trial counsel in implementing law and motion strategy in the pre- and post-trial stages, working with trial counsel during trial to identify and prepare trial motions and objections needed to preserve appellate rights, and providing independent evaluations of appellate issues and the chances of prevailing on appeal.
