Disruptive Lawyer

Is Your Lawyer Disruptive?

 

Does your lawyer have the unique skill set to reduce case life cycles?

Does your lawyer have the unique skill set to reduce legal fees without compromising indemnity payments?

Does your lawyer know your industry metrics and which ones are important to you?

Is your lawyer concerned about your loss ratio compared against industry norms?

Sometimes, disruptive is good. Disruptive innovation describes what happens when a new product, technology, or way of doing things comes along and disrupts the thinking of an established industry. Likewise, the Disruptive Lawyer embodies the right skills to disrupt—in a positive way – your expectations.

At Cruser Mitchell, our litigation management approach focuses on early evaluation and resolution, simplifying the process, and utilizing metrics to ensure we’re closing cases effectively and efficiently, potentially saving millions of dollars in legal fees while maintaining a consistent indemnity ratio.
