I think bringing a case against an international financial institution at the end of the day is like bringing a case against anyone else. Most of our cases are basically all testament cases. Somebody got cheated out of money, somebody got promised something and they didn’t get it, somebody got betrayed. So what you’re doing is your taking your client’s story your presenting it in a way to the judge and to the jury and to the other side where folks can understand it.

And then you’re saying, hey judge, hey jury, our client got mistreated here. They got cheated by a large financial institution they got promised something and they weren’t paid it. And we approach it the same way whether we’re litigating against a large financial institution, a multinational company, a hedge fund, or anyone else that’s the story we tell.
