Local Counsel to Out-of-State Law Firms
We are glad to fill the specific role that meets the needs of lead counsel in a particular case. Sometimes this involves our providing traditional local-counsel services, such as advising on local laws, rules, customs, and personalities; assisting with court filings and service of pleadings; covering court appearances; and hosting depositions. Often we are asked to play a more substantive role, actively participating with lead counsel in the representation of the client in the lawsuit.
