Value Added Services


Value Added Services

Wilson Elser’s commitment to our clients goes beyond delivering exceptional trial and litigation capabilities. We continually strive to exceed expectations. Drawing on resources from within and outside the firm, we offer the following suite of Value-Added Services that allow our clients to more efficiently and effectively run their businesses.

Wilson Elser ALIGN
ALIGN, Wilson Elser’s proprietary legal project management system, enhances our clients’ ability to approach legal engagements with greater efficiency, predictability and consistency. Shaped by more than five years of in-market experience and guided by industry best practices, ALIGN maximizes the value we provide our clients – whether defending single-plaintiff lawsuits or multijurisdictional class actions.

e-Learning: Online Legal Training Videos
Mandated workplace training is on the rise, and Wilson Elser helps clients comply with related state and local requirements through easily accessed videos. These virtual tools provide an efficient, effective means by which organizations – particularly those with multiple locations – can inform and enlighten employees on sexual harassment, human trafficking and other sensitive issues.

Crisis Management & Emergency Response
Catastrophes are not beholden to timetables. Nor are we. Wilson Elser understands the critical importance of deploying a swift, coordinated and proactive approach during the first 24 to 48 hours following a manmade or natural catastrophe. Often as part of “go-teams,” our trial-tested attorneys protect our clients’ interests on-site and help posture them for success in ensuing litigation. Our crisis management services focus on such categories as transportation, cyber, maritime, and consumer and industrial products, among others.

Professional Education Program
Maintaining continuing legal and professional education, while sometimes burdensome, is nonetheless a state-mandated and important way to keep current with legal topics, trends and case law. Through a comprehensive Professional Education Program (PEP), Wilson Elser offers our clients a broad range of CLE and CE presentations. All are provided free of charge and count toward accreditation requirements.

Resource Centers
As issues or events arise that profoundly impact the legal and broader communities, Wilson Elser promptly builds applicable online resource centers. These serve as repositories of practical information and insights for our clients and other interested parties. They also provide a means by which site visitors can interact in or near “real time” with practice attorneys intimately familiar with the facts and challenges at hand.
