Bart Starr believes he can be an effective counselor and litigator only by learning everything possible about each client's unique business, their history and future, the factors that differentiate them from their competitors, and the things that are important to them and those that are not. For each dispute, he also considers what constitutes a winning outcome, from the client's perspective, and what current and future issues and challenges keep their employees, officers, directors, and attorneys up at night. His sole and constant focus is on counseling and representing clients in ways that enable them to spend their valuable time and energy focusing on business, not on lawyers and litigation.
Bart has spent 10 years in the engineering business and 15 years as a patent and intellectual property litigator identifying solutions and resolving business disputes in creative and alternative ways or, when necessary, in the courtroom. But he recognizes that some disputes simply cannot or will not be resolved through negotiation, mediation, or limited litigation, and those cases should and must go to trial. In those instances, Bart is thoroughly prepared to share the client's story and the important facts to judges and jurors in a clear and persuasive way, focusing his and his team's time and energy, from the beginning of the dispute, solely on those high-value facts, issues, and themes that matter to judges and lay jurors.
