Mr. Leon recently granted us an interview in which he shared a few key insights into his professional philosophy:
Your firm has cemented a reputation for itself as “a difference-maker” when it comes to complex and aggressive high stakes litigation; What can corporate clients expect when retaining your services?
When retaining our Firm’s services, our clients can expect an experienced trial lawyer known for his ability to breakdown complex issues and concepts through “outside the box” thinking to create common sense solutions. We are skilled negotiators and problem solvers but have always had a reputation as highly-rated, aggressive and offensive minded, but measured litigator with two decades of experience.
Do you employ a different approach when litigating on behalf of entrepreneurs or startup companies as opposed to large corporations?
The needs of an upstart can certainly be different than those involved in older, more established corporations with greater resources. Our firm however takes an individual approach to our client’s work, meaning we employ a client-centered approach wherein we focus on greater communication with a communication flow that takes both their legal, public relations and business needs and goals into consideration
In your opinion, what are the key elements that should be taken into account when embarking on a new attorney-client relationship? How do you gauge whether your firm will be the right fit for a particular case?
Prospective clients should seek lawyers who are experienced, can demonstrate a proven track record and believe in a client-centered approach, where the client’s long term goals is taken into account. A lawyer should ideally be as effective a negotiator, as he is a dogged, aggressive litigator who will always zealously advocate for his client.
