Save Money On Your Legal Spend

THE ENGAGED COUNSEL BENEFIT

Leverage (n) ... farming out work on a given case to less experienced attorneys and paralegals.  i.e. how law firms actually make money. The dirty secret of Big Law is that the partner who you thought you hired is usually not doing the dirty work in the trenches. However, the "trenches" are the most expensive part of litigation and where many cases can be won or lost. 

The law industry is like the restaurant industry in this regard - the celebrity Master Chef who brought you in the door is usually not behind the grill doing the cooking or sometimes not even creating the recipe.  

As a result, you may end up paying more for less - higher Big Law rates for work product from a more junior "work horse" lawyer who you have never met. 

It doesn't have to be this way. 

You, as the client, can cut over 33% of your legal spend on a case by hiring ENGAGED COUNSEL directly to prepare your case for trial or dispositive motion. Attorney Shorge Sato has over 15 years of law firm experience as tha "work horse" attorney, and is an Illinois SuperLawyer in his own right.  ENGAGED COUNSEL is happy to coordinate and work with your preferred outside counsel in this process, take it all the way to trial or at the appropriate time, hand off the baton. 

PRE-LITIGATION ANALYSIS AND NEGOTIATION

Sometimes the best way to win a fight is to avoid it altogether. Consulting with ENGAGED COUNSEL at the outset of a dispute to stategize, negotiate/resolve disputes, analyze documents and prepare for litigation if necessary.

 

UNITED STATES BANKRUPTCY JUDGE JAMES M. PECK, MARCH 11, 2010

"The most extraordinary work product I have ever encountred."

"THE COURT: Okay. I'm saying -- and this is an aside on my part.  But I have read -- I can't say every single on of the 2,200 pages becuase I've skimmed. But I consider this to be one of the most extraordinary pieces of work product I have ever encountered. It's extraordinarily comprehensive. It reads like a best seller. And it's so well organized that it's actually useful. So my compliments ... to everyone who had any meaningful input in what I consider the most outstanding piece of work product ever produced by an examiner."  

(While at Jenner & Block, attorney Sato personally edited and drafted over 600 pages of the Bankruptcy Examiner's 2,200 page report on the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers Holdings, Inc.)
