Description: How can law firms and in-house legal departments deepen their analysis of litigation by reframing it from a cost to an investment? This framing has implications for what litigation to pursue, how to select counsel, when and for how much to settle, and how to measure success. The program will also give an introduction to litigation modeling.
 
Presenter Bios (to be included with description of program)

Drawing upon her extensive experience working in litigation, Ashton helps create innovative and practical fee arrangements ranging from simple fixed fees to complex shared risk arrangements.

In addition, Ashton partners with Robins Kaplan’s executive board and leadership team to manage the firm’s portfolio of risk-based arrangements.
 
Ashton oversees Robins Kaplan’s matter management program, including an in-house team of certified legal project managers who partner closely with firm clients to effectively scope, budget, and manage legal matters from inception to result. These efforts help provide transparency and predictability in costs in the delivery of legal services.
