Local Counsel

Delaware is known as the incorporation capital of the United States. It is the one state where more companies are formed than any other. It follows that a high volume of corporate, business and commercial litigation takes place in Delaware. For out-of-state lawyers, handling a case under Delaware jurisdiction is prohibited unless they associate with another lawyer who is admitted to practice here.

At Martin D. Haverly, Attorney at Law, we frequently work with business law attorneys across the country. We provide guidance on Delaware laws and court rules, helping to prepare lead counsel to handle their cases effectively.

Our experience exceeds 19 years and involves acting as local counsel in matters, including but not limited to:

  • Business litigation
  • Commercial litigation
  • Real estate litigation
  • Employment matters

Keep in mind, Delaware has a high threshold in terms of duties and responsibilities for local counsel. Under the applicable rules, acting as local counsel is not just a formality. It involves being informed about the case as necessary to sign pleadings. We must be prepared to handle the case on our own, if necessary. We work collaboratively with those in the lead and look to them for information on updates, case progress and strategic decisions.

We have handled cases involving every facet of business and commercial law and litigation. From business formations and contract negotiations, to resolving partnership disputes and breach of contract actions, we are a full-service business firm with extensive knowledge of Delaware laws. We are the optimal choice for clients requiring local counsel services.
