Information for Attorneys

We form a variety of case by case associations with other attorneys and law firms on particular whistleblower matters, as described below:

We frequently seek local counsel on matters filed in jurisdictions where we are not licensed to practice and for which we cannot apply on our own for admission pro hac vice. Typically, we compensate local counsel who perform only ministerial functions associated with commencing an action with a small share of the proceeds from the case if it is successful.

We also seek to form more substantive co-counsel alliances with other lawyers to handle large and complex cases, usually after we have survived motions to dismiss non-intervened cases, and, most commonly, where extensive human and technology resources are needed for discovery and summary judgment purposes, and, in rare cases, for trial. In these instances we compensate co-counsel with a substantial share of the proceeds from the action if it is successful, as well as a pro rata share of any recovered statutory hourly attorneys’ fees.

Finally, we also associate with co-counsel on matters where other attorneys have particular expertise, experience or relationships that are especially helpful on specialized, unique or complex matters. In these instances we compensate co- counsel with a substantial share of the proceeds from the action if it is successful, as well as a pro rata share of any recovered statutory hourly attorneys’ fees.

Conversely, we are willing and able to serve as local counsel and/or co-counsel to other attorneys and law firms with existing whistleblower clients and matters. Among other things, we are particularly interested in helping other attorneys get favorable government intervention decisions. We provide local counsel and co-counsel services under contingency and pro rata statutory hourly attorneys’ fee terms similar to the ones we agree to when we retain local counsel or co-counsel for our matters.

We are also happy to pay referral fees to other attorneys in appropriate cases where the referring attorney does not actively participate in the matter after the initial referral and typically does not have whistleblower expertise and experience. In these instances we compensate referring counsel with a significant share of the proceeds from the action if it is successful.

Please contact us to discuss any of the above local counsel, co-counsel and referring counsel arrangements in greater detail.
