Thanks in favor of sharing such a good opinion, paragraph is good, thats why i have read it completely

I disagree. Much of litigation involves not only a loser but also possibly profound hits to the brandname and the stock price. Just look back to the years of the Rhode Island lead paint public nuisance lead paint ligitation. Until the RI Supreme Court tossed that, the defendants, which were convicted by a jury, suffered terribly.,

Law is almost never a zero-sum game. With issues like contracts, wills, real estate, etc, the clients are not engaged in a zero-sum scenario with winners and losers.

The litigation process is likewise rarely zero sum. Most law suits settle before going to trial, which puts us back in the land of negotiation. Many settlements involve terms other than money, which allows for an agreement that both sides find preferable to even a favorable jury verdict.
