LITIGATION RISK

There's no crystal ball in litigation, but there is CSI.

Initially, a potential litigation may appear frivolous or insurmountable and those early presumptions can lead to hasty and uninformed decisions.

However, once reconsidered in the context of data, the actual exposure or potential litigation risk becomes crystal clear ... and often different than what was originally assumed. With CSI's research, trial teams avoid the all-too-common error of being more clever than correct.

CSI's research methodology has been refined over three decades to generate the most scientifically valid estimates of litigation risk and exposure, saving millions in deriving settlement strategies. We bring science to the table today, so your money isn't left on the settlement table tomorrow.

CSI analyzes data to evaluate your exposure, estimate damages, and steer case strategies.

CSI provides objective analysis to illuminate the scope and scale of a potential legal matter. Drawing upon proprietary research methods with a proven track record of predictive validity, CSI consultants can forecast the likely outcome of litigation and estimate the ultimate cost to your business. Armed with this insight, your legal team can execute their strategy with confidence.    


Accurately valuing a case requires digging deeper than just the merits of the claim.

Your financial analysts will estimate disruption to business operations, the potential lost revenue, and the direct costs of legal representation.

Meanwhile, CSI litigation risk consultants weigh the factors that affect litigation valuation. This combined litigation risk assessment equips your company to make informed decisions.
