I vote we all go have a cool beverage of choice and forget about this until Snowdrop (love that name) comes back on with some facts.

The best book on the topic I ever found at a paperback clearance shelf at Barnes and Noble-

You should check out his earlier book. It is also a great read on the subject.

Else you will just be paying the lawyers a hell of a lot more money, as they will too. I suppose he could have added the line: "Or else the carrion birds (lawyers) shall be the only victors."

In other words, don't start a nuclear war before the sabres have been well and thoroughly rattled.
Obviously Sir you are right and wrong. Right on leaving the enemy an escape wrong on my lack of knowledge if both warfare and litigation. Tsun Tset Tsu used bravado and an appearance of overwhelming might by deception such as planting flags strategically in order to make your forces appear greater that they are.

The objective of going to war with all guns blazing is to avoid a long protracted legal battle. If you pussy foot around at the onset you are inviting the other side to go to battle rather than surrendering. My suggested strategy is to force a quick surrender. If not than to maximise ones gains.

Mmkay, well, seems to me there's a fair degree of clear water between ensuring negotiation through a show of force and "hit them with everything and without mercy", as you actually suggested. And "force a quick surrender"? Not how litigation operates. Unless you are the one with the wildly and disproportionately deep pockets, that is. Generally that goes in favour of company versus individual. But it is a game, and the Nash equilibrium of that particular game is the mutual benefit of the officer class: can you guess of whom I am speaking?
