"Litigation is the pursuit of practical ends, not a game of chess.”

~ Felix Frankurter, United States Supreme Court Associate Justice 1939-1962

The litigation team at Beck, Chaet, Bamberger & Polsky, S.C., agrees that litigation is the pursuit of practical ends. This focus has led us to adopt a “functional” approach to litigation, which involves disentangling the fundamental from the inconsequential and partnering with our clients in a meaningful way. Our team’s commitment to a functional approach means that our cases are less about gamesmanship and more about winning the right way. We count on our clients to be key decision makers in all phases of litigation, which requires us to equip our clients with the intelligence and data so that they can make well-informed decisions – this is an obligation that we take seriously.

Despite our litigation ethos being rooted in practicality, don’t be mistaken, our team can play chess with the best of them. Clever maneuvering and the strategic deployment of resources are two hallmarks of our litigators. We take the time to understand our client’s specific business, the goals to be achieved through litigation, and – at the outset of an engagement – reach an understanding with our client on what a “win” looks like. This approach allows us to anticipate and adjust freely while keeping our eye on the prize, all along remaining aligned with our client’s objectives.

Our litigation team not only excels in the courtroom, but also in arbitration, administrative, and other dispute resolution proceedings, as well as appellate proceedings. When disputes emerge, our litigators also provide risk management guidance in order to avoid litigation altogether or to reach an early resolution.
