We are, first and foremost, a powerhouse trial firm. We play to win and are prepared to go to trial at any moment to protect our clients' interests. This trial readiness often drives settlements: either way, we get the results our clients are looking for.
- 185 TRIAL LAWYERS, ONE TEAMOur trial lawyers function as a unified team to handle high-stakes matters from coast to coast, sharing expertise and resources to deliver the highest levels of service. This approach allows clients to benefit from our national presence, reputation, and bench strength.
- OFFENSE AND DEFENSEUnlike many litigation firms, we represent both plaintiffs and defendants. Our exceptional track record in both areas gives us a unique perspective on the other side’s priorities and motivation.
- GROUNDBREAKING WINSOur record speaks for itself. Since 2002, The National Law Journal has published a listing of the nation's Top 100 Verdicts. Since that time, no law firm in the country has won more Top 100 Verdicts than McKool Smith.
- INNOVATIVE FEE STRUCTURESMcKool Smith has long been recognized as an industry leader in offering flexible and innovative fee arrangements. We are committed to succeeding, and often share the risk of litigation with our clients through success-based fees and other creative billing structures.
- STRATEGIC APPROACHWe act strategically in anticipation of changes that affect our clients, building deep relationships that enable us to effectively represent them in any forum, in any location. We also assess financial risk, understanding that to be effective, litigation must achieve a business objective and make economic sense.
- COLLABORATIVE AND RESPECTFUL CULTUREWe are respectful of others, whether colleagues, clients, co-counsel, or opposing counsel. That's the McKool Smith way. This approach allows our trial lawyers to approach litigation in a collaborative manner that gets the best results for our clients.
