Through the Select Counsel network, providing local counsel is simple
For independent lawyers looking for ways to increase their network, providing local counsel opens up a new source of business.
Select Counsel has created a new law firm model that brings national and global clients to local attorneys. The organization’s network spans the country and the globe. It includes only experienced attorneys who can provide on-the-ground, local expertise to clients from other regions. Many attorneys in the network run independent practices or work for boutique law firms.
According to Select Counsel CEO Andrew Dick, the network provides general counsel with more flexible options when working a case in a new jurisdiction:
“GCs shouldn’t have to pay the steep rates of a global firm or get passed from one big firm to the next to find good counsel abroad, especially when there are so many outstanding boutique firms out there that are often a better fit.” (Source: Corporate Counsel article)
For attorneys, the organization gives them access to a broad network of attorneys in 50 cities around the world. It provides a new channel for business development and a platform for greater exposure.
