Berrett & Associates, L.C. is one of Utah’s premier civil litigation defense firms. We are a broad-based civil litigation defense practice, enabling our lawyers to vigorously defend clients in the following areas:
Although most legal disputes settle out of court, we have the skill and experience to go to trial when necessary. Drawing on years of experience, we fight effectively to uphold your rights.
The best way to deal with civil litigation is to establish a relationship with a law firm that will help you avoid it. Our attorneys advise you on how to establish sound practices and draft strong contracts to protect you. If you are facing a lawsuit, we create a strong response within the limited legal timeline. We arrive at the best negotiated solution, or go to bat for you at trial. We help business owners navigate the court system and avoid some of the inherent disadvantages in the defense of these types of suits.
Our attorneys partner with clients to manage litigation costs. Our goal is to strengthen our clients’ bottom line with prompt and cost-effective attention to each case. To save on costs, defense counsel can shift the burden of the cost of discovery to the plaintiff, among other tactics. We recognize and appreciate the need for prompt investigation and assessment of claim exposure, and a preemptive, decisive and aggressive defense without losing sight of the goal of controlling the cost of claims.
