Methodology for defeating powerful foes
When we take up the cause of individuals asserting their rights against
large institutions, we do not expect to outspend the opposition but
we do intend to outsmart them. We believe that vision and boldness can
be important assets in cases involving fundamental rights, where legal
standards may still be evolving. Multidisciplinary background equips
us to devise creative tactics in anticipation of defense maneuvers.
In a large case, we form a team including seasoned legal counsellors
bringing complementary knowledge and skill. Atty. Tony Bothwell’s
prior experience as a journalist, union leader, corporate spokesperson,
intelligence officer and national laboratory executive has enabled him
to develop innovative, high-impact approaches to litigation.
