Jay understands the nature of his clients’ businesses and their objectives, and he works proactively and strategically to meet those objectives. From the beginning, he identifies key plaintiff and defense litigation themes, and analyzes supporting and opposing proof. Jay focuses throughout discovery on preparing cases for trial and spends the time necessary to develop trust and rapport with witnesses in order to understand their strengths and vulnerabilities. He conducts rigorous mock cross-examinations of his witnesses so they become comfortable with the process and are best prepared when placed under oath.
Jay has extensive experience working with other leading law firms while serving on national trial teams, as well as serving as national discovery counsel and national coordinating counsel in multidistrict litigation, mass tort litigation, and individual actions. He thrives on working as part of a team and continually looks for opportunities to support his clients and other team members.
