The Problem:
Companies of all sizes and in nearly every industry face an existential threat from abusive lawsuits. Plaintiff lawyers have weaponized the courts and abandoned justice in favor of a guaranteed pay day from insured businesses. Small accidents and claims reap settlements far out of proportion to actual damages. Meanwhile, the specter of a truly catastrophic loss - loss of life or limb - haunts companies and defense attorneys. Will it be the next nuclear verdict or nuclear settlement?

Predictably, insurance companies respond with ever-higher rates. We've reached the point where some smaller companies simply can't afford it and larger companies are forced to assume greater risk. A favorite tool of the trade for plaintiff lawyers is the so-called "Reptile Theory." They've honed the technique to a fine art, and they've got a dramatic success record. Success for them is a defeat for real justice.

The Solution:
It takes a fierce and agile creature to defend against a deadly reptile.

Introducing: The Mongoose Method
The Mongoose Method is conceived to restore balance to our justice system. The goal is to beef up the arsenal of our defense bar and provide training to proactively recognize and avoid traps; educate employees and the greater business community. The Mongoose Method training program lays out the scientifically-proven causes of nuclear verdicts and nuclear settlements and sharpens awareness of Reptile Theory tactics used in depositions and at trial. The Mongoose Method is about being less vulnerable during litigation and allowing us to go on the offensive.

Information is power. The plaintiff's bar has made themselves even more successful by sharing resources. They produce practical seminars, strategic coaching, and share and teach demonstrated techniques to damage defense witnesses. Always striving for the biggest award possible, they provide direct consultation on cases with large judgment potential.

We will balance the scales of justice by teaching the Mongoose Method.
