In an era when many big firms and litigation boutiques view trials as uncommon or occasional events, the Verrill Litigation & Trial Group offers unparalleled hands-on experience in actual trials. At last count, our team had tried more than 600 jury and non-jury cases, in addition to handling several hundred arbitrations and thousands of mediations and administrative proceedings.

Whether handling an antitrust case, defending directors and officers in a significant shareholder derivative action involving a major corporation, litigating multiparty real estate transactions, or resolving cases arising from complicated contractual and business disputes, we have handled it. We take on cases where the stakes are high and the issues are complex. Our background in litigating high-profile cases allows us to rapidly identify and focus on the key factors that affect a dispute.

Litigation is a dynamic process. Law is constantly evolving. We keep apprised of the latest developments and verdicts across the country. We anticipate appellate issues and plan the best strategy to safeguard our clients' legal position.

Capacity
With more than 40 attorneys and 10 paralegals, our team has the capacity to take on the most complex matters across a broad range of industries. Matters are staffed according to complexity and exposure. While Verrill relies on associates and paraprofessionals as appropriate, our partners are involved in the day-to-day management and work of our clients' cases.

Technology
We have invested in and rely heavily on technology to assist in the efficient management of cases. Our paralegals use leading-edge discovery and trial software portfolios (including Ipro Eclipse, Relativity, Catalyst, Eclipse SE, and Trial Director), enabling the team to handle, for example, a recent case involving over 30 million documents and 1.5 terabytes of data.

Legal research is undertaken by associates and shared electronically among team members via online folders. We use an internal document management system (iManage) that is widely considered to be best-in-class. We also have an extensive library of pleadings from prior cases and a centralized bank of research memos.

Service Area Map

States with experience are indicated in green.

Although our firm is based in New England, we try cases throughout the country. Most of our attorneys are licensed in several states, and we often have the opportunity to appear on a pro hac vice basis in those jurisdictions where we are not already licensed.

Our clients expect excellence in the work we do and the results we achieve. We accept nothing less for ourselves. Whether our Trial Group is engaged to protect a client's interests before suit is commenced, during the litigation, or on the eve of trial, or we are hired to advocate for a client on appeal, we provide experienced counsel to our clients when they need it most.
