Cunningham, Meyer & Vedrine has acted as national defense counsel for a large not-for-profit organization involved in a multi-district federal litigation case and related state court actions. The firm has used its technical support staff to create a database of litigation-related documents, deposition transcripts, and other information critical to the defense of so enormous and complex a case. Playing such a substantial role in a case that has included the largest non-bankruptcy personal injury settlement in United States litigation history has given Cunningham, Meyer & Vedrine a unique advantage. The “learning curve” for understanding how to prepare a defense to such a large and complex case can be time-consuming and expensive. An organization looking for defense counsel in such a case need not concern itself that Cunningham, Meyer & Vedrine would pass those “educational costs” on to the client.
