Early Case Assessment is a conflict management process designed to facilitate informed decision making at the early stages of a legal matter. Early case assessment is a collaborative process between the in-house counsel, outside counsel, and the business client. At the outset of a litigation event, this team assembles the pertinent information to make as informed and disciplined a decision as possible at that time concerning the handling of the legal matter, whether by negotiation, mediation, dispositive motion, trial, or otherwise, despite imperfect data and without engaging in formal discovery.
