Fitzgerald frequently serves as local counsel working in conjunction
with managing counsel or primary outside counsel for individuals and
companies large and small who need resort to Massachusetts courts for
their complex litigation matters.
Knowledge and Experience.
Having spent decades litigating cases in the state and federal courts
of Massachusetts, our attorneys are knowledgeable as to the local rules,
judicial preferences, and the subtleties of practicing before Massachusetts
judges and juries. When non-local lawyers complain about being "hometowned"
often it is because they were unfamiliar with local practice customs,
rules or individual judge preferences when planning and trying a case.
We can help.
Local Advice and Assistance You Want. Finding
the right balance among primary and local counsel is important. We are
here to work with you in whatever capacity best suits your needs, whether
it be from simply facilitating pro hac vice admission and advising about
compliance with local service, formatting and page length rules, to
substantively taking the reins from the pleading stage through trial.
Yet we also understand how quickly things can change in litigation,
which makes it important to have local counsel who can pivot to adjust
to changing strategies or needs. We are ready for the task and have
the experience and capability to fully contribute to the client's success
– and to yours. In addition, having begun our careers at large
national law firms, we are equally adept at working with large multi-national
law firms as well as boutique and solo practitioners.
your clients are in need of experienced, knowledgeable and efficient
Massachusetts local counsel, please contact
us. We would be happy to lend a hand.
