Local Counsel

It’s 5:00 p.m. and you’ve just received a call from your biggest client that they’ve been sued in Colorado, where you are not licensed. It happens. You need local counsel. Sometimes, we do too. If you are an attorney from outside of the Denver, Colorado region seeking local counsel for your clients, the team at Fortis Law Partners can help. Our highly experienced attorneys are well-versed in a broad range of industries and practice areas and can make your job navigating the state and federal courts of Colorado easier.

Laws, rules and procedures are varied and nuanced in each state and locality. Your choice for local counsel should be highly knowledgeable about the local courts and judges, trusted within the legal community and have strong relationships with other law firms and attorneys in the region. And, of course, your local counsel must have expertise in the area of law at hand. Fortis Law Partners can check all of those boxes, which is why we are regularly retained to serve as local counsel for cases ranging in size and complexity.

We can provide support in whatever scale or capacity is required – whether that’s simply offering behind-the-scenes insights on local courts and procedures or serving as a strategic, full-service partner. Fortis Law Partners will help you meet your client’s needs while respecting your client relationship and role as lead counsel.
