Every attorney must effectively interact with individuals across various
cultures. In litigation, a lack of awareness of cultural differences can
result in missed opportunities to conceptualize the best theory for your
case, and to strategically execute the case theory at a high level for
your client. Indeed, these missed opportunities will often affect success.
Accordingly, if your client, adversary, judge, witness, adversarial witness,
or jury pool is of a different cultural background than you, it is your
duty to communicate with them in a culturally competent manner. Being
perceived as ignorant or uninformed with respect to cultural differences
can cause serious damage to your reputation, your law firm’s reputation,
and adversely impact your client’s ability to win the case.
At Hamilton Clarke, LLP, we provide a custom-tailored review, analysis,
and second-seating services for any stage of litigation involving culturally
diverse stakeholders. Whether preparing for depositions, trials, briefing,
or the like, the
attorneys at Hamilton Clarke, LLP can ensure that your every move — both inside and outside of the
courtroom — is a high-level, culturally competent one.
