Superior Litigation & Trial Strategies

The distinctiveness of every client requires unique and adaptable legal tactics. Accordingly, Lausten & Co., LLC works collaboratively with other attorneys, large litigation firms, and solo practitioners to tailor their scope, workflow, and approach to ensure that the best strategy is always fully implemented towards an optimal result. Kristin is also affiliated with several New Orleans law firms where she has expanded her parachute and rescue counsel trial practice.

Parachute Trial Assistance

As parachute counsel, Kristin is retained in the months leading up to trial to assist with evidentiary analysis, preparation of electronic trial notebooks, trial assistance, and appellate brief writing, if necessary. She can provide services for all components of a trial including pre-trial motions, jury instructions, direct and cross-examination outlines, post-testimony motions (limiting motions), drafting of opening/closing statements, and post-trial motions and briefing. As parachute counsel, Kristin provides trial support to lead counsel, who generally controls the direction of trial and takes lead in jury selection and witness examinations.

Rescue Counsel

In addition to providing parachute trial assistance, Kristin and her team have been retained to take complete control of a case in the months leading up to trial. Often referred to as “rescue” counsel, this option is available for attorneys and law firms that do not have the time or resources to take a case through trial. As rescue counsel, Kristin and her team actually conduct the trial, from voir dire through verdict. This option allows attorneys to focus on other cases while ensuring the interests of their client are protected in trial.
