When we formed Eimer Stahl in 2000, we set out to create a different kind of law firm—one that would deliver outstanding results for clients, but take a more personal, creative approach to getting there. And that's what we've done. Today, our firm has a solid track record of resolving the most complicated cases intelligently and efficiently. Our clients trust us to handle their most complex legal problems—securities and antitrust work, multi-district environmental and product liability litigation, high stakes contract disputes and intellectual property disputes. We meet our clients mind-to-mind in relationships built on shared vision and a determination to win. Our working style is collegial, less formal. We have attracted Fortune 50 clients, as well as attorneys from the finest law firms, and professors from leading law schools. Our commitment to clients drives us. Our success affirms it. We've built extraordinary relationships with our clients and their in-house legal counsel—informal, productive partnerships that make us more of an extension of our clients' own team than traditional outside counsel. We get to know not just the practical aspects of our clients' business, but how they think, the challenges they face, the goals they're targeting. We offer flexible and flat fee arrangements to control costs and share the risks of litigation. We work toward the long relationship rather than the long litigation. The results are tangible: more efficient, more cost-effective and more rewarding management of the litigation process—achieved with tenacity and great passion. Most litigation firms focus only on the case at hand. While never losing sight of the case, we place equal importance on working with clients to identify and rectify business issues that underlie the litigation. The strength of these client relationships rests upon the structure of our firm. We're compact, focused and agile. Yet, we have a national litigation presence, with the capabilities and capacity to resolve the largest, most complex legal matters. We're ready at a moment's notice to lead a full-force legal team anywhere in the country. We draw on our own attorneys, as well as the specialized expertise of our colleagues on the faculties of the Northwestern University, Columbia and the University of Chicago Law Schools. We enhance these resources using sophisticated technologies, guiding litigation with a single purposeful objective—winning. Clients get the flexibility and economies of a smaller law firm, plus strategic excellence and trial experience gained working on the nation's most sophisticated matters. Our practice encompasses commercial, antitrust, environmental, product liability, securities litigation and intellectual property. We also conduct alternative dispute resolution, antitrust counseling and merger review. Our clients include leading national and international industrial corporations, and consumer products, financial services and petrochemical companies. Our mission remains the same as the day we opened our doors: to keep learning, growing and improving so we can achieve the best results for our clients.
