ABOUT US

Started in 1996, the firm has been an innovator from its inception. It pioneered the use of integrated computer technology in the practice of law. Employing voice recognition software, computerized legal research and law firm management and accounting software, the firm eliminated the need for cumbersome and expensive layers of support lawyers, technical and legal staff and, at the same time, established its reputation for being able to respond with unmatched quickness and thoroughness to complex litigation matters.

The explosion of electronic information and records in business requires that lawyers have the experience and expertise necessary to manage and exploit that information to secure the best possible outcome for their clients. The firm's early start with technology created an advantage that has been maintained by Advocates continuing commitment to innovation. The firm's lawyers have unparalleled expertise in the use of integrated electronic document imaging and integrated electronic transcript and document management.

The litigation law firm of Advocates LLP offers a focused and cost-effective approach to specific types of complex legal problems. Advocates competes successfully with the largest law firms given Advocates' restricted areas of practice and commitment to innovation in the practice of law.

Advocates' lawyers offer clients a rare mix of skills and experience, including senior, experienced litigation lawyers who, themselves, are able to implement the information technology needed to be successful in modern litigation. By eliminating the layering of legal staff "touching your file" and the significant costs associated with that layering, Advocates produces creative, high quality legal solutions that are cost effective.

No law firm can be all things to all people and, from its inception, Advocates chose to restrict its practice to litigation and dispute resolution. The firm’s lawyers practice in the complex areas of construction litigation, business litigation, banking and insolvency disputes, environmental law and litigation and professional negligence litigation. Alternative dispute resolution can provide cost-effective solutions. Advocates' lawyers also bring their experience and expertise to the task of helping other lawyers and their clients resolve their disputes by acting as both mediators and arbitrators.
