In complex litigation, there often is a disconnect between the front lines of e-discovery and first-chair, lead trial counsel. “With e-discovery being where many cases are won or lost, it’s smart to retain a full-service litigation team on the cutting edge of technology as well as experienced in the lead role at trial,” says Roe Frazer, head of Frazer PLC. “We focus on innovative strategies designed to establish strong positions early, leveraging advanced technology in early case assessment, fact-finding, and discovery strategy ” says Frazer.

Frazer PLC is committed to lean principles and sensible fee arrangements. The advantage of strategy design from a first-chair perspective at every stage of the litigation allows for key decisions to be made quickly and dynamically. Finding the proverbial needle in the haystack, Frazer says, is the most important piece of that puzzle, and one that Frazer PLC is focused upon intently. “To keep costs down, we attempt to get at the key data early, and devise keen strategies around that data,” he noted. Frazer says that the Firm’s attorneys, e-discovery professionals, and data analysts give its litigation clients a unique advantage: “no case is too big for us because we deploy the latest and fastest technology, creating efficiencies in time and resources.” According to Frazer: “We work with lawyers to assist them in their very unique needs and goals with innovative litigation solutions.”

Frazer PLC also offers solid business and legal consulting services for entrepreneurs and companies. “We make sure that entrepreneurs ask all the right questions from initial formation to capital raising. We help growing companies get to that next level,” says Frazer. Having been involved in many start-up enterprises, Frazer is uniquely positioned as a lawyer-entrepreneur to help early stage companies be successful.
