Continuing Consulting Relationship
The Continuing Consulting Relationship – designed for law firms with an active litigation practice – consists of monthly or quarterly pre-scheduled focus groups that allow you to regularly test your cases at various stages of litigation.
We will recruit and coordinate a group of jurors to focus your cases either monthly or quarterly. This not only enables you to identify the problem areas of your cases from the start, but also to continuously test out various elements of your cases to develop. To accomplish this, we use our mock jurors to conduct issue analysis and theme mapping; to build arguments, find out what works, what doesn’t work, and determine if a case is worth settling or even taking in the first place. Our jurors can evaluate your demonstrative evidence and make suggestions as to what would be most persuasive. Jurors let you know what they understand and what they do not understand, and they can assist you in putting your demonstrative evidence together just by virtue of knowing what they need and/or want to know. In addition, you can use these jurors to effectively prepare your witnesses for trial and deposition.
This approach is based on a medical model. We start by triaging any of your cases for weaknesses; we subsequently assess, diagnose and treat that case’s problems on a regular, continuing basis. This approach gives you time sufficient to anticipate and remedy lingering problems in your case. The process we use is intended to develop a treatment plan and “think tank” the solutions. We continuously re-evaluate and strategically plan your case, making recommendations every step of the way.
You can also use your consulting day to conduct a mock trial. Many law firms have built courtroom facilities in their offices. This is an excellent opportunity to make use of those facilities. We will charge you a regular flat fee for our services.
We have used FLC over the years to help us evaluate several of our most complicated multi-million dollar cases. The information from the research they conducted, and more importantly, the insight and analysis they give to the data is invaluable.Brandon P. Hull, Denver, Colorado
