“We have a scorecard. We know when we win and lose, and our team enjoys winning an awful lot. As a result, our clients’ problems are our problems. They spend the day with us. They go home with us at night. At times, they accompany us through the night while the adversary sleeps, until we have a solution and a way to win the struggle, resolve the dispute, and help our clients get back to their real business.”
