Special Masters help Judges and attorneys reach fair results more quickly, ultimately saving the parties money and conserving judicial resources.
A good Special Master is:
Consistent, treating the parties equally and always adhering to high standards. Open-minded to all parties’ arguments, and open-doored, easily accessible when needed. Honest, transparently serving the parties and the Court without any hidden agenda. Excellent at listening, at understanding the law, and at resolving disputes. Nice – practicing law is already hard; you deserve to be treated with kindness and respect.
If you need help with complicated motion practice, monitoring compliance with Court orders, mediating settlement, settlement claims administration, hard-fought discovery disputes, patent claim construction, or any other aspect of litigation, call 216-831-0001 or email David R. Cohen today.
