Jake guides his clients through all facets of the litigation process, including pre-suit investigations, discovery management, liability/exposure analysis, and trial.  For each case, Jake develops a plan to meet his client’s specific requirements.  Jake has found that his experience with complex cases, including class actions and multi-district litigation, is particularly valuable for those clients who are facing an onslaught of lawsuits in different venues.  Jake prides himself on working together with his clients and their general counsels to create a unified, winning strategy across multiple fronts and teams.
