Typical project time, from start to finish, is four weeks at a minimum. Very often, however, Magnus is retained on cases months or years prior to trial. In such cases, Magnus provides consultation or focus group / mock trial research services as a case is developed. Magnus’ involvement can result in time efficiencies for the litigator because we focus on preparing the case based on the key concerns of the fact finders. Magnus’ client, the litigator, must make a time commitment on the project, typically including preparing materials for Magnus, briefing the consultant, and making a presentation either on videotape or live during the day of research. Wherever possible, Magnus endeavors to minimize the attorney’s time responsibility for the project, to make the process as effortless and efficient as possible for our clients.
