Funny, I Was Thinking the Same Thing

[I’ve] always hated litigation, and I continue to hate it.

I highly prefer to settle versus battle.

– Tim Cook, Apple CEO

It is important to notice who this quote is from – the client.  Your lawyer has the exact opposite viewpoint.  Lawyers love litigation -because litigation increases billable hours – the bottom line.  To them, there is nothing better than a bloody battle.  Of course, the client is far better served by Mr. Cook’s advice – settle and settle early if at all possible.  Settlement provides three things that clients love:

  1. Certainty
  2. Finality
  3. Far smaller legal bills

    Never thought of it this way, but excellent point.
