Co-Counsel With Burg Simpson

One of the secrets to our success at Burg Simpson has been our collaboration and referral arrangements with other law firms across the country. It has always been a top priority at Burg Simpson to develop co-counsel relationships with other law firms in all 50 states.

There is any number of reasons to co-counsel with another law firm. It could be that the other firm is able to practice in a state that you are not. It could also be that your firm is more experienced in a particular area of law than your potential partner. These arrangements can benefit both firms and, more importantly, better serve the client.

It does not matter which state you are in. We have offices in several states, and we are able to work with attorneys anywhere in the country.

DO’S AND DON’TS OF CO-COUNSEL AGREEMENTS

Whether you decide to co-counsel with Burg Simpson or someone else, there are some things you should do before signing any collaboration agreements:

  1. Do your homework. Find out as much as possible about your potential new partner. Look at their track record, interview the partners, and even consider a background check. When you enter into a co-counsel agreement, you are not only sharing resources and potential revenue, but you are sharing your reputation. It is also prudent to confirm that your potential co-counsel is adequately insured.
  2. Get the agreement in writing. It might seem obvious, but get everything in writing. This usually takes the form of an official co-counsel contract. This document should include details such as: how the workload will be divided, a mechanism for resolving disputes, how revenue will be shared, who will handle billing and expenses, etc. Working through this formal agreement should reveal how the relationship will function moving forward. Finally, include a provision for who would retain the client if the co-counsel relationship is terminated.
  3. Don’t forget to agree on a timeline. It is imperative you establish a clear roadmap of various deadlines and how the responsibility for those deadlines will be apportioned. A missed deadline will reflect poorly on both parties in addition to potentially jeopardizing the client’s case.

CO-COUNSEL AGREEMENTS CAN HELP YOUR BOTTOM LINE

To date, we have paid more than $50 million in co-counsel fees to other attorneys. We have helped them generate revenue from cases outside their historical practice areas. We have added money to their bottom lines. We can do the same for you. This is what we bring to any potential co-counsel agreement:

  • A record of more than $1 billion in verdicts and settlements
  • Ranked by Martindale-Hubbell as  Number One  Product Liability Law Firm in the country
  • A team of more than 60 experienced attorneys
  • Multiple federal court appointments
  • Nationwide representation

NATIONAL LEADERS IN PHARMACEUTICAL MASS TORTS

Mass tort litigation is a complex area of law and can be a cost-prohibitive venture for many firms. Burg Simpson’s mass tort team of attorneys have represented thousands of plaintiffs who have suffered serious injury from defective products or endured side effects from prescription medicines. Our team of Colorado mass tort lawyers and paralegals can pursue these types of high-profile cases, which usually involve large corporations. Co-counseling your next drug or medical device injury case with Burg Simpson will allow you to overcome some of those hurdles and generate revenue from the cases you might otherwise have to turn away.

We are convinced that our knowledge, expertise, and vast internal resources are able to provide our clients and business partners an advantage that is unmatched.
