Mithoff Law’s Strategic Advantage
“I keep the firm small and lean on purpose—it’s all about focusing on the big picture.”
– Richard Mithoff, in Forbes Magazine
Given the number of high-profile cases with Mithoff Law’s name attached to them, you might expect the firm’s lawyers to number in the dozens. But in truth, there are only five, including Mithoff himself.
Whether working on commercial cases or fighting against powerful insurance companies, Richard Mithoff emphasizes efficiency, collaboration, and expertise as pillars of performance. “If we’re working on a commercial case, usually the client already has a law firm they work with on a day-to-day basis. That firm is able to assist with discovery and briefing, allowing me to focus on the big picture and the strategic decisions needed to win the case.”
Richard Mithoff’s track record of precedent-setting wins has helped him and the firm build a wide network of expert attorneys, a network Mithoff Law is not afraid to leverage during complex cases. “If it’s an oil and gas case, I associate with a firm that has oil and gas expertise. A patent case, I associate with patent attorneys. They provide the subject matter expertise. We provide the litigation expertise.”
To Mithoff, it all comes down to focusing on what clients come for: unmatched litigation prowess.
“We don’t need dozens of lawyers with dozens of specialties in my office. We have very good trial lawyers and the flexibility to meet whatever the client’s needs are for each particular case. Our goal is to put the client in the best position to win.”
