Business Litigation and Warfare – Like Eating Soup with a Knife
T.S. Eliot once penned, “Making war upon rebellion is a messy and slow affair, like eating soup with a knife.” Determined, clever, and wily attorneys often prevail against more powerful antagonists. In warfare, a small group of scrappy colonists defeated England – then the most powerful nation in the world. Similarly, small firms often take huge verdicts against a “superior” foe.
Strategically and tactically, business litigation is very similar to asymmetrical warfare, where the clever and wily often prevail – even against well-funded adversaries. Deception, force multipliers, economy of force, and knowing when and how to fight all come into play.
If you face business litigation, you are essentially at war and need all the wisdom and guidance you can get to prevail.
