Attorneys really need to have a large depth of medical knowledge as they enter into their cases. They’re not clinicians, but they need to know a lot about the medicine underlying their cases. And not just superficially—they have to be able to rattle off disease states and treatments for those disease states. That’s where Strategic Research originated from. It is covering that knowledge gap that attorneys sometimes have. The way it works is if you have any questions about the medicine behind the case, our team looks at anything that’s ever been published on this topic and puts together an executive summary for you. At the end of that document—that deliverable—we give you access to the primary literature.

In addition to saving time, the reason to request a Strategic Research document is to get a very authoritative opinion on a certain topic written by someone who’s trained in that field. It’s written in a way that you don’t really need a medical degree to grasp it. Once attorneys receive the finished product, anybody can read it and understand really high-level medicine pretty easily. And that’s really the thrust of why this service exists. [The reason for Strategic Research] is to bridge the gap between a complex medical topic and the layperson. If you’re an attorney who would like to request a Strategic Research document or just enter into a conversation with us, I say the best place to start is our website. There is a pathway to submit a formal request there. Or, [you can] give me a call. My phone number is 646-362-4571. I can also be reached at [email protected].
