Many of our cases come from referrals from other attorneys who know that Kirtland & Packard LLP has the experience, resources and trial record that will obtain the best possible result for clients, and their referring attorneys. We often associate into cases shortly before trial, and have the manpower to digest and present any type of case. As trial approaches, costs often skyrocket, and we are prepared to step in and assume full responsibility for the case, working out an arrangement which creates the best chance of success for all involved. Our goal is always to make sure that referring counsel continues in the case in a role that they are most comfortable with.

Joint Ventures

We are frequently asked to joint venture or work as co-counsel on complex cases. We have the ability to work as part of a team, without ego, to obtain the best results in any particular litigation or legal project. The various skills the attorneys of Kirtland & Packard LLP have developed also help keep the cost of case “experts and advisors” to a manageable level, decreasing the costs of the litigation to the client.


Kirtland & Packard LLP, over its 84 year history, has developed considerable litigation resources which include working relationships with key experts in various disciplines, and the ability to position difficult cases for potential appeals, and then handle the appeals if necessary. Please contact us if you have a case you want to refer to us, if you want to joint venture with us, or if you are litigating a case that has reached a stage at which you may feel you would benefit from our assistance.
