Our Firm

 

Firm History 
Gargiulo / Rudnick, LLP was formed in 1986 by the merger of two firms established by two aggressive former prosecutors with extensive trial experience. That trial experience, along with experience with the public and private sectors, was used to create a diverse litigation practice where clients’ claims are both prosecuted and defended. Throughout our existence, our members have been active, not only in legal practice, but in governmental and legislative affairs on national, state and local levels.

Client Satisfaction
We are committed to client satisfaction as evidenced by our top national ranking assigned by Martindale-Hubble. The size of our firm is a substantial advantage in that it allows us to be dynamic and competitive. We are consistently able to satisfy our clients and have built our success on the strength of our litigators, coupled with a unique approach to solving legal problems in a cost-effective manner. The bureaucracy and institutional expenses associated with large law firms is eliminated. We develop case-specific action plans at the outset of litigation in which the core issues are identified and litigation objectives defined, resulting in a streamlined approach to the desired goal which may be modified, as appropriate, throughout the course of litigation.

Team Approach
We encourage a team approach to client representation where clients have available partners, associates, law clerks, and/or paralegals where appropriate depending upon the clients’ individual needs. This allows for the most cost-effective service while ensuring the appropriate level of expertise for the task at hand.

Risk Management
Our experience dictates that businesses often can minimize – if not eliminate – various types of liability and attendant costs by timely identifying potential sources of liability and taking reasonable, economical measures to address these issues. We counsel our clients on ways to prevent future litigation and, where appropriate, recommend utilizing alternative dispute resolution methods. Our proactive approach includes evaluating clients’ needs and creating corporate compliance programs, conducting internal investigations and developing policies and procedures to protect large and small businesses.

Use of Technology to Advance Client Interests
A thorough command of available technology has become increasingly important in all aspects of the legal profession. We use state-of-the-art litigation support systems to promote efficiency and cost savings in legal research, interoffice communication, client communication, and trial presentation. Additionally, we have forged business relationships with litigation support vendors who provide services necessary for the management of document-intensive cases as needed on cost-efficient terms, thereby eliminating inflated overhead costs and bureaucratic inefficiency attendant to in-house law firm document management programs.
