Local Counsel Services
In some cases, larger corporations prefer to be represented by “national counsel”. Unless they have been admitted to the Virginia Bar, out of state counsel appearing in state court will need to team up with local counsel to undertake the representation. Our firm can act as local counsel for out of state attorneys appearing pro hac vice throughout Northern Virginia. We can walk you through the process of pro hac vice admission, handle the drafting of all motions and applications to facilitate the attorney’s pro hac admission, and draft any orders required to complete the process. Thereafter, the Rules of the Supreme Court of Virginia require that local counsel appear with pro hac counsel during all appearances before a tribunal. Our attorneys can also handle any other routine or pro-forma motions and other appearances where attendance by out of state counsel is not necessary, or cost effective. Our services also include advice regarding procedural compliance and reviewing of pleadings for adherence to local and state rules of procedure.
Our attorneys routinely defend companies that maintain high deductible insurance policies, or lack adequate or applicable coverage. We also have significant experience handling insurance coverage disputes, and insurance related declaratory judgment actions.
