Local Counsel Services
We are frequently retained by boutique and regional law firms that do not have offices in the Northeast to serve as their local counsel in litigations pending in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, and Connecticut. These firms look to our expertise with local procedures and practice expectations, as well our broad experience in construction, commercial, bankruptcy and consumer finance litigations.
In our role as local counsel, we attend hearings and other court conferences, keep lead counsel apprised of case developments and upcoming deadlines, and assist counsel in seeking pro hac vice admission. At the request of lead counsel, we can assume a larger role in the litigation or dispute while lead counsel consults with and advises the client on strategic decisions.
If you would like to discuss your specific needs for local counsel in the state or federal courts of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York or Connecticut, or the specific requirements for pro hac vice admission in one of these courts, please contact the Skolnick Legal Group, P.C. and we will be happy to assist you with your case.
