Reiff and Bily Notable Case Results

“Confidential Result”: Why We Can’t Publish Some of Our Biggest, Most Powerful Wins

In many cases, the company or party who caused the injury will settle for a very large sum instead of taking the risk of going to court. That’s a good deal for our client, who gets a large, guaranteed award without the trauma of a trial. But as part of the settlement, the company may also demand that we keep the agreement confidential. That protects them from pile-on lawsuits. But it means we can’t publish details of our best cases here. However, we can provide certain anonymous details to provide some background into the types of cases that we have successfully handled.
