Deutsch Kerrigan views the task of resolving a legal problem as a partnership between the client and its outside counsel. Our goal is to work closely with each client to provide high quality, effective legal service which exceeds the client's expectations.

We get results, and we get them efficiently by knowing our clients and their businesses.  When faced with a particular problem, we combine this knowledge with our familiarity of the law, agency, court or other tribunals to craft a solution that best meets our clients' goals.

With over 60 trial attorneys and a substantial support staff, we apply our legal and support resources carefully to most effectively meet the needs of our clients.  Every file is assigned to an experienced attorney who coordinates all work on the case and maintains ongoing communication with the client.  

Because regular communication with our clients is essential, we are equipped with the latest technology.  Each of our attorneys has access through a state-of-the-art network to a variety of billing, e-mail, database, document management and calendaring programs.  Our technological capabilities allow us to communicate and share information with our clients and with other attorneys throughout the country, through memberships in legal organizations that include approximately 3,000 attorneys practicing in 75 offices.  Our use of technology also extends to our communications with judges and juries.

Our firm utilizes creative alternatives to traditional litigation procedures.  We have successfully engaged ad hoc judges, arbitrators, and mediators in the resolution of such matters.  We have convinced the courts to use mini-trials or selected issue resolution to bring practicality to complicated cases.

We represent local, national and international businesses, as well as state and local governmental bodies and non-profit organizations.  They range in size from Fortune 500 companies to small, emerging businesses, and individuals and include, among others, manufacturers, insurance companies, contractors, real estate developers, financial institutions, airline companies, architects and engineers, oil and gas exploration and dredging companies, and marine service businesses.

Using a sensible approach to litigation, we help our clients resolve disputes by balancing desired business outcomes with what is smart economically.  We’re relentless about moving cases forward to keep your case in the “red zone” where matters get resolved and cases don’t collect dust.
