Why Do I Need a Big Law Firm to Take on a Big Company?

Why Do I Need a Big Law Firm to Take on a Big Company - law firm

If you’ve been injured because of the negligence of a large corporation, you may be owed compensation, but unfortunately, those big companies won’t hand it over without a fight.

Big companies can cause big problems that require big solutions, and that’s why size matters. Morgan & Morgan is the largest personal injury law firm in the country, with over 35 years of experience and over $20 billion recovered for our clients. We know how to stand up to even the biggest bullies, so we can tell you what it takes to fight a big company in a legal battle.

Taking on a big company in a legal battle can be an intimidating and complex endeavor. Large corporations typically have extensive resources, including teams of skilled lawyers, vast financial assets, and access to expert witnesses. To level the playing field, individuals often need the support of a big law firm.

Morgan & Morgan can offer big advantages, such as:

 

Resources and Financial Strength

One of the primary advantages of Morgan & Morgan is our substantial resources and financial strength, which can be critical in protracted legal battles.

  • Access to Expert Witnesses: Big law firms can afford to hire top-notch expert witnesses who can provide critical testimony and support for your case.
  • Advanced Technology and Research Tools: They have access to the latest legal research tools, databases, and technology that smaller firms might not afford.
  • Financial Stability: Big law firms can sustain lengthy legal battles without financial strain, ensuring that your case is pursued thoroughly and effectively.

Think about it: Insurance companies have billions of dollars and hundreds of high-powered attorneys they can deploy to squash any lawsuit that comes their way. Many of the cornerstones of a strong case—experts, investigators, technology, travel, and research—cost money. Small firms are less likely to have as much money on hand as big firms do. That makes many of them ill-equipped to take on Big Insurance or Big Pharma.

Experienced and Specialized Attorneys

 

Large law firms employ a diverse team of attorneys with various specializations, ensuring that every aspect of your case is handled by an expert.

  • Specialization in Various Legal Areas: Big law firms have lawyers specializing in different fields such as product liability, personal injury, corporate law, and more. This multi-disciplinary approach ensures comprehensive legal representation.
  • Experienced Litigators: These firms often have seasoned litigators who are adept at handling complex and high-stakes cases against large corporations.
  • A Winning Record: You also want to find a sizable law firm with a reputation to win and stop short of nothing to recover the full and fair compensation for their clients.

At Morgan & Morgan, our army of over 1,000 attorneys is spread out over our law offices in every state in the country and covers a vast array of practice areas. We can have the right lawyer for your specific case, and the team necessary to investigate it. Plus, with over $20 billion recovered and over 50,000 5-star reviews on Google alone, our numbers speak for themselves.

 

A Reputation to Win

We’ve won a lot of money from insurance companies, drug companies, car companies, and tobacco companies. That means that these corporations know us, respect us, and fear us. The last thing they want to hear is that someone injured in an accident hired Morgan & Morgan, because they know they might lose. 

Our reputation for success gives our attorneys more leverage at the negotiating table. The other side knows we’ll go to trial if we have to, so we don’t have to settle for anything less than full compensation for our clients. If an insurance company or an automaker won’t negotiate in good faith, we’ll take them to court and they know it. 

A reputation like ours makes cases more winnable. But we never could have sustained this level of success if we didn’t give our clients a great experience. Morgan & Morgan was founded on the principle of sticking up for your family. When we take your case, you join our family. That means we’ll give you the same level of attention, dedication, and care that a small law firm would.

 

Strategic Advantage

Big law firms like Morgan & Morgan also bring strategic advantages that can be crucial in a legal battle against a large company.

  • Knowledge of Corporate Defense Tactics: Experienced attorneys from big law firms are familiar with the tactics used by corporate defense teams and can anticipate and counter these strategies effectively.
  • Reputation and Influence: The reputation of a large, respected law firm can itself be a strategic advantage, often compelling big companies to consider settlements to avoid drawn-out legal battles and negative publicity.

 

Comprehensive Case Management

Handling a lawsuit against a big company involves managing a multitude of legal tasks, which big law firms are well-equipped to handle.

  • Large Support Staff: Big law firms have a robust support staff, including paralegals, legal assistants, and administrative personnel who help manage the complex logistics of your case.
  • Coordination and Communication: With dedicated teams for different aspects of the case, big law firms ensure efficient coordination and communication, leading to a cohesive legal strategy.

 

Thorough Investigation and Discovery

A thorough investigation and discovery process is essential in building a strong case against a large company.

  • Extensive Discovery Resources: Big law firms have the resources to conduct exhaustive discovery, including obtaining documents, depositions, and other evidence necessary to build a strong case.
  • Investigative Teams: These firms often employ or have access to professional investigators who can uncover critical evidence that may be difficult to obtain otherwise.

 

Ability to Handle Large Volumes of Data

Cases against large companies often involve dealing with vast amounts of data, documentation, and a tech-forward law firm like Morgan & Morgan.

  • Data Management Systems: Big law firms use advanced data management systems to organize and analyze large volumes of information, ensuring nothing is overlooked.
  • Document Review Teams: They have teams dedicated to reviewing documents, identifying key pieces of evidence, and managing electronic discovery.

 

Negotiation Power

Negotiating a settlement with a large company requires skill, experience, and leverage, all of which big law firms bring to the table.

  • Experienced Negotiators: Attorneys from big law firms are experienced negotiators who can leverage their knowledge and skills to secure favorable settlements.
  • Leverage and Pressure: The presence of a big law firm can put pressure on large companies to settle, knowing they are up against formidable opposition.

 

Trial Readiness

While many cases are settled out of court, being prepared to go to trial can significantly impact the outcome. Morgan & Morgan never settles for less and takes more cases to trial than any other law firm.

  • Courtroom Experience: Big law firms have experienced trial attorneys who are comfortable in the courtroom and skilled in presenting cases to judges and juries.
  • Trial Preparation Resources: They have the resources to conduct mock trials, prepare comprehensive trial exhibits, and engage in meticulous trial preparation to ensure readiness if the case goes to court.
