Trial Support

Trial is a team event.

War Room

Going to trial is our business—it is what we are most passionate about. After 30 years, we have well over 1,000 trials under our belt and we know that a successful trial team must work in perfect unison. We have the knowledge, perspective, experience, communication skills, and the stamina to pull together through the long days and nights of trial.

We have supported clients in war rooms and courtrooms across the nation—from New York to San Diego, from Anchorage to Miami, and hundreds of gleaming cities and dusty towns in between. Every consultant at IMS | The Focal Point is ready to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with you, to be your partner, in any one of these places. You can trust us to know what we are doing and why, and to represent you and your client before the court and the jury with courtesy and professionalism. 


Working with IMS | The Focal Point in the trenches

War room support — Having the consulting team from IMS | The Focal Point on-site multiplies the power and efficiency of your trial team. Communication is more efficient. Demonstratives are iterated more quickly and more accurately. Witnesses can be better prepared with in-person preparation sessions. Jury selection is more organized and thorough. Nightly exchanges run more smoothly and the inevitable revisions can be made on the spot. Additionally, friendships are forged based on shared experience and trust developed in the courtroom. This camaraderie is crucial not only for the current trial but for the many more the trial team will have together in the future.

Our Trial Consultants, Graphic Designers, and Technology Consultants are valued members of your trial team—generating creative ideas, producing demonstratives, managing evidence, editing deposition video, and helping to preparing witnesses. We are leaders, taking an active role in the planning and execution that goes into a successful war room. Our proudest moments in any war room are when senior members of the trial team acknowledge that we have everything under control and know exactly what needs to be done that night, and thus, they feel comfortable leaving early and getting an extra couple of hours of sleep.

“IMS | The Focal Point provided a top notch team, onsite in Toronto, that worked very hard and long hours.”
