Partner Miles Scully was interviewed for a feature column entitled "Litigation Leaders: Miles Scully of Gordon Rees Scully Mansukhani on the Value of Being in All 50 States," published by The American Lawyer. The magazine's Litigation Leaders series features the litigation practice leaders at some of the biggest and most innovative law firms in the country.
In the article, Scully describes the vision behind Gordon & Rees' 50-state approach, stating that "the idea was to give our clients consistent service across all 50 states." The platform is especially valuable when general counsel are faced with hiring national coordinator counsel to coordinate litigation across the country. Clients have had to hire from different law firms in different states, risking inconsistency in culture, training, and potentially even discovery responses. “Today, Gordon Rees is the only law firm that can provide national counsel and a fully integrated level of service, with one point of contact and consistency across all 50 states. And that’s a unique selling proposition that no one else can even come close to offering.”
"We are always evaluating our metrics regarding how big the problem is versus how little were we able to solve that problem for the client, because the surest way to get long-term business is to create a solution that’s a true win for the client," said Scully when asked to describe Gordon & Rees' unique value proposition. "In the legal business, when people see that you’re a law firm that tries and wins cases—and doesn’t just pay whatever it takes to settle them—that makes them think twice about how aggressive they’re going to be versus working out a solution."
Scully is a name partner of the firm and is continually ranked as one of the top trial attorneys in the nation. He has served as first chair for dozens of trials and highly publicized verdicts and represents some of the world's largest companies and many well-known celebrities.
