“You've got to know when to hold 'em Know when to fold 'em Know when to walk away And know when to run”
Brown, LLC has an innovative cost-effective way of approaching commercial litigation. Although most cases are taken on an hourly basis, the firm will consider contingency arrangements for certain matters or hybrid retainers as well. The firm is very selective about what cases it will litigate and is in high demand. Although we handle cases nationwide (in conjunction with local counsel depending on the venue), the bulk of the commercial litigation handled by the firm is in New Jersey and New York.
The head of the firm Jason T. Brown is a former FBI Special Agent and Legal Advisor who has often has a sixth sense for mapping out litigation strategy and finding a way to advance or defend cases while keeping costs under control. Mr. Brown is also a panelist (Arbitrator) with the American Arbitration Association.
It is critical to have a candid conversation with commercial litigation counsel early in the process to consider the appropriate route for the commercial dispute. The firm will give an early evaluation about the strengths and weaknesses of the case, the different venues to commence or defend the action in and whether it is advised to spend money and resources litigating the matter versus early settlement and most importantly why the firm has that conclusion. Thus, the quote above from Kenny Rogers because you have to know when to hold them and stand your ground and litigate, and know when to fold them and settle.
