Initially, Abacus focuses upon mitigation of the disputes, so distraction and delay are minimized.

Then, Abacus concentrates on evaluation of each dispute, including preliminary investigation and analysis that result in an action plan, which is tailored to your business objectives and legal strategies.

A major focus of the action plan is to facilitate early dispute resolution.  Abacus typically conducts detailed analyses, breaking the disputes down - issue by issue, fact by fact, and event by event in order to assess the liability, causation and damage components of each dispute.  A fair, balanced and objective assessment of each dispute frequently is the impetus for an early and cost-effective resolution. 

If desired, Abacus will become an integral part of your professional team, working directly with you and your legal counsel.
