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?
