Litigation Analyst - PointPrecedent, Inc.
Why do Gryphon's investment clients need Mitch?
Companies routinely face uncertainty on their investments because of litigation and market reaction to that litigation. The market frequently overreacts or underreacts -- without understanding the true underlying risk and cost of that litigation. Moreover, acquiring companies might well view a target company's litigation risk -- especially mass tort litigation risk -- through the lens of a dispassionate observer rather than the eyes of a jury sitting in a courtroom, very capable of blaming the company for an alleged faulty product or device, and rendering a verdict that shocks the market and crushes the market cap of the company.
Complementing Gryphon's Enhanced Diligence & Intelligence team, Mitch’s 35 years of litigation expertise enables our clients to fully understand the true risk of litigation on their existing holdings or prospective investments.
