Barber Law Group - firm profile

"Give me a lever long enough and a place to stand, and I can move the world."
- Archimedes

80% of the consequences come from 20% of the causes.
- Pareto's Law

The key attribute of the Barber Law Group is understanding how to use leverage creatively and successfully. We know what works and what doesn't. Finding the most effective activities as early as possible reduces transaction costs and achieves the best possible result. What wins cases is the right activity. We budget and determine what constitutes a win from your perspective. We are aggressive when necessary but with activities that make a difference in the long run, bridge the distance from one point to another in the most efficient manner,  and result in successful resolutions.

We leverage our expertise in handling complex commercial litigation including all aspects of first and third party insurance coverage, insurance bad faith, products liability, toxic torts and environmental law. We have a national practice advising some of the most sophisticated consumers of legal services for Fortune 500 businesses on cost-effective litigation management and prevention.  We maintain a trial and appellate practice representing plaintiffs and defendants in State and Federal Courts.
