down to a science
As the top US litigation consulting firm in settlement sciences, CSI delivers sophisticated science-based services, technology and analytics that insulate companies from exorbitant costs, runaway settlements and massive jury verdicts. While your outside counsel practices law, CSI practices litigation science.
What We Do
Damage control and cost containment begin before the lawsuit is filed
When litigation is imminent, companies that aim to succeed start by retaining two mission-critical professionals: CSI and outside counsel.
CSI provides corporations and their outside counsel with the specialized knowledge needed to proactively stay ahead of the adversary at critical stages of the litigation lifecycle.
We empirically analyze and evaluate liability to identify a company’s vulnerabilities, mitigate damages and contain costs when litigation arises. Our properly credentialed doctoral-level experts apply science, analytics and over 35 years of applied behavioral expertise to give litigators a tactical advantage—often before a case is even filed.
We call it “Directional Discovery.” Our clients call it protection against economic and reputational disaster in litigation.
Leveraging extensive experience in legal proceedings, psychology and critical communications, CSI consultants define the stance that best insulates your company, and they prevent initial public statements from undermining your strategic position in forthcoming lawsuits.
Once outside counsel is engaged, CSI works in tandem to give the litigators the highest likelihood of a favorable resolution. We reveal the jury perceptions that drive the optimal response and ultimate outcome of the case. Armed with this scientifically-based guidance, your law firm weighs the facts, evidence and case law that underpin the strongest legal arguments. And, using a unique psychometric approach, our team identifies and remediates flawed witnesses before they jeopardize the case. Finally, we prepare witnesses using industry-leading training techniques that strengthen case themes and theories.
Our certified professionals efficiently gather the records in support of your discovery challenges and deadlines and meticulously manage the logistics of recording deposition testimony: from court reporters to transcript technology – with all deliverables available electronically through secure web-based technologies.
If shielding your corporation from the possibility of runaway settlements and jury verdicts is important to you, you need litigation science. Call CSI for Critical Communications,Litigation Psychology, and Records Retrieval & Deposition Services.
Our online portal securely stores the deliverables from all phases and puts the data, insights and records at the fingertips of outside counsel and your cross-functional CSI team.
Our clients refuse to compromise their businesses with commoditized services.
When a legal matter puts your reputation, revenue or operations at risk, engage CSI to seamlessly support outside counsel. Our vast archival data and on-going research studies enable our clients to calibrate, fine tune and validate winning approaches.
This symbiotic partnership minimizes the entities that are involved in your company's sensitive issues while also liberating your outside counsel to focus on substantive law practice rather than the non-legal aspects of the case that drive jury-level decisions and damages. Our scientific approach fortifies the foundation upon which your entire case is built and provides your counsel with the fresh perspective they need to optimize their tactical approach.
