The General Counsel of a bank client needed periodic coverage for general civil litigation, including pleadings and settlement agreements, as well as transactional matters. This coverage resource would allow the General Counsel to be able to keep up with bankruptcy proceedings and negotiations. The General Counsel did not want to take on a a permanent hire when he knew the work load would peak and fluctuate.
Assigned Counsel presented a local mid-level contract attorney candidate able to step in immediately on a part-time basis to review loan documents and manage litigation files, enabling the General Counsel to keep on top of the bankruptcy case load. This represented just the right balance for the General Counsel.
