Local Counsel Service
We are frequently chosen as local counsel because of our active practice in the courts located in the District of Columbia, Northern Virginia and Maryland, and our commitment to innovative and aggressive litigation representation. Our litigation lawyers have served as local counsel for plaintiffs and defendants, including Fortune 500 companies, as well as small start-up companies and individuals. Our role varies depending on the needs of the case and the desire of the client and their general counsel.
Each court has its own local rules, and important nuances. We assist outside litigants traverse the procedural intricacies of litigating in the District of Columbia and Northern Virginia, including Arlington County, City of Alexandria, Fairfax County, Prince William County, and Loudoun County. For instance, the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia is often referred to as the “Rocket Docket,” as it the fastest court in the land. This reputation for speedy and judicious decisions makes it an attractive forum for litigation, particularly in intellectual property disputes. The demands of the procedures of the Rocket Docket require counsel with foresight and aggressive strategies who are also intimately familiar with the applicable local rules.
The choice of PCT Law as local counsel will provide a significant, and sometimes decisive, advantage.
