WHY RETAIN OUTSIDE TRIAL COUNSEL?

Cost-Effectiveness – When you retain outside trial counsel, you avoid the increased fixed costs that come from hiring a new associate. Retention of an outside trial lawyer means you only pay on a project-by-project basis rather than committing to the continuing costs associated with a new employee.

Avoid Time Pressures – Trials demand a comprehensive, in-depth commitment of time.  When you retain outside counsel for trials,  you free yourself from this pressure so that you can concentrate on other aspects of your practice.

Increase Efficiency – Experienced trial lawyers have honed their craft and focus on the core issues of fact and law that really matter in the resolution of the case. When you are not tied up in Court for days, you are free to utilize your time and skills in the manner most efficient for your needs.

 Focus – Retained trial counsel is concerned only with the case before him and gives it his entire attention. There is no distraction from other matters that may need attention.

Professional Satisfaction – There are lawyers who find more satisfaction in other parts of the practice of law – negotiations, research and writing, or case investigations. Retaining outside trial counsel allows you to concentrate on the aspects of your practice that you find most personally and professionally rewarding.

Make More Money - Retaining outside counsel to try your cases frees you to focus on the elements of your practice which are most lucrative for you. Outside trial counsel is often retained at a rate lower than your billable hourly rate.
