We don't just try cases. We try the right cases.

Most law firms will do anything to avoid trial. But Shook believes that sophisticated litigation management should provide clients the best available outcomes based on a credible threat of trial and trying cases that should be tried.

We created Coefficient Litigation Management™ to help in-house counsel triage their litigation portfolio, target priority objectives to relieve burdens on their companies, and resolve cases while curtailing future filings. 

Our client-centric model is scalable litigation management for your complex constellation of cases.
