Regional Associates

In addition to our full time members, and off-counsel, we also have regional associates- independent lawyers based in regional states that work with us in serving our clients’ matters in the regions. Some of our lawyers have license to practice in the regions, but it is always our policy to retain local co-counsel outside the Federal Jurisdiction. Some of our clients have branches all over the country. Therefore, when we are faced with regional cases, depending on the complexity of the case and the amount involved we use two alternatives. If the case is simple and the amount involved is small in monetary terms, we link our regional associate with our client, and the regional associate provides most of the legal service in the relevant region. This does not mean that we are not involved. We give overall guidance, we prepare the written submissions to be submitted to the regional court, and manage the case from our offices.
