Carrington Coleman’s trial lawyers redefine “winning.” Described by clients as “strategic,” “efficient,” and “clever,” we’re a team of litigators who consistently develop innovative, effective ways to achieve a client’s goals quickly and cost-effectively. With our highly collaborative approach, we begin with the end in mind, and work backwards to define the best strategy and tactics to deliver real-world results.
Carrington Coleman represents a broad range of clients in industries ranging from technology to healthcare to finance, energy, and transportation. Renowned for their rigor, intellect and consistency, our lawyers routinely try cases against much larger firms and teams – and prevail. We emphasize laser-focused preparation, originality, and, above all, knowing what traction we need to gain during each stage of any dispute to get the results our clients need. Whether it’s our nationally-renowned Appellate practice, our sophisticated Securities Litigation team that’s accustomed to bet-the-company cases, or Construction and Real Estate attorneys who help clients complete projects, we understand that, for clients, outcomes are what matter.
We’re Defined by the Courtroom
We are true courtroom lawyers – we try cases and are fully prepared to go the distance if that’s in the client’s best interest. Not all litigators can say that. We’re collaborative –clients are engaged in the process start to finish, and are always informed, consulted, and kept current. And our clients know that Carrington Coleman can intuitively adapt to what each situation demands, whether it’s drawing on a deep bench for a major, multiparty dispute, or adopting a more agile, streamlined approach when timing, complexity, and uncertainty require it.
Strategic, efficient, and clever – that’s Carrington Coleman for both trials and appeals
Our clients attest that we staff cases with precisely the skill and talent they and their case require. This tailored approach enhances and supports coordination and communication – every member of the client team is aligned. Clients appreciate this economy and efficiency. And most of all, it supports the pioneering problem-solving methods that define Carrington Coleman’s dispute resolution team. Lean, smart teams working closely with each client provide candid, informed guidance and solutions that maximize outcomes while minimizing risk, cost, and unnecessary complications.
Client Issue: Hint, a software development company in San Francisco, was sued by one of its partners on a major software project, alleging fraud, misappropriation of trade secrets, and other malfeasance. In the midst of the COVID pandemic, a two-year lawsuit collimated in a two-week jury trial in United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas.
Approach: In trying this case, we zeroed in on the issues that really mattered to the client, litigated aggressively, and kept it streamlined with an efficient, focused courtroom team.
Outcome: Opposing counsel was an international firm more than ten times our size, which brought three times as many attorneys to the courtroom. The jury completely exonerated Hint of fraud and misappropriation, and found $0 in damages. Our success against even the largest firms is tested and proven.
