in the war room and courtroom
We give you peace of mind, eliminate surprises, and ensure a seamless presentation of your case.
TRIAL IS A TEAM EVENT
Going to trial is our business—it is what we are most passionate about. After 30 years, we have well over 1,000 trials under our belt and know that the successful trial team must work in perfect unison. We have the knowledge, perspective, experience, communication skills, and the stamina to pull together through the long days and nights of trial. Simply put, we are the people you want to partner with in the war room and the courtroom.
We have supported clients in war rooms and courtrooms across the nation: from New York to San Diego, from Anchorage to Miami, and hundreds of gleaming cities and dusty towns in between. Every IMS consultant is ready to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with you, to be your partner, in any one of these places. You can trust us to know what we are doing and why, and to represent you and your client before the court and the jury with courtesy and professionalism.
IN THE TRENCHES
War Room Support: Having your IMS consulting team on-site multiplies the power and efficiency of your trial team. Communication is more efficient. Demonstratives are iterated more quickly and more accurately. Witnesses can be better prepared with in-person preparation sessions. Jury selection is more organized and thorough. Nightly exchanges run more smoothly and the inevitable revisions can be made on the spot. Additionally, friendships are forged based on shared experience and trust developed in the courtroom. This is crucial not only for the current trial but for many more that the trial team will have together in the future.
Our Trial Consultants, Graphic Designers, and Trial Techs are valued members of your trial team: generating creative ideas, producing demonstratives, managing evidence, editing deposition video, and helping to preparing witnesses. We are leaders, taking an active role in the planning and execution that goes into a successful war room. Our proudest moment in any war room is when senior members of the trial team acknowledge that we have everything under control and, since we know exactly what needs to be done that night, they can leave earlier and get an extra couple of hours of sleep.
Courtroom Support: Trial presentation is both an art and a science. Like all art, it requires training, patience and practice to achieve perfection. Like science, it requires thorough planning and absolute attention to detail. Each of our Trial Techs has more than ten years of experience presenting evidence in trials, arbitrations, hearings, and mock trials. Each has done so between 100 and 300 times. They are experts at quickly finding and displaying documents and videos. You can feel confident that we will show the judge and jury exactly what you want them to see, precisely when you want them to see it.
Our professional Trial Techs are familiar with your case and committed to your success. This shows in all aspects of their courtroom work. They plan for perfection—but prepare for the unexpected. They are never rattled by courtroom technology glitches, last-minute edits, or unexpected calls for trial exhibits. You can be assured that our Trial Techs can handle the most unusual of courtroom events and keep the jurors focused on your presentation, not on the technology.
