Experienced and Effective Referral or Local Counsel
of our clients are referred to us by other attorneys. Through years
of experience, we have become familiar with the many reasons, both
legal and practical, that compel attorneys to refer cases or seek
local counsel, including:
- The referring attorney recognizes the need for local counsel
with knowledge of judges, attorneys, local rules or other aspects
unique to the geographic area in which the case will be heard.
- The referring attorney is not interested in trying cases.
- The referring attorney does not have the subject matter expertise
required to handle the case.
- The complexity, scale or time consuming nature of the case
mandates that the originating attorney refers it to a firm capable
of handling the volume of expected work.
- Conflicts of interest prevent attorneys from handling matters
themselves, thus making case referrals to other counsel necessary.
- An opportunity for co-counsel representation may arise in cases
where there are multiple defendants and a conflict necessitates
- For financial, personal, or other non-legal reasons, the referring
attorney simply does not wish to represent the client.
