As a litigation boutique law firm, O’Neill McFadden & Willett LLP’s business is centered on serving attorneys and their clients in litigation and business matters. While we serve a large base of long time clients, we also enjoy developing new referral and co-counsel relationships with firms and lawyers seeking lead counsel or local counsel for their clients, or who need to resolve an actual or potential conflict of interest that they may have in specific matters. In all cases, we respect the pre-existing relationship between the client and referring lawyer, and value the opportunity to serve the client a single engagement.
OMW lawyers regularly practice before both state and federal courts located in Northwest Indiana and the Indianapolis metropolitan area. We often advise out-of-state lawyers and their clients regarding the intricacies of local rules, practice and procedure, and welcome the opportunity to lend our unique talents and focus to collaborate in a larger capacity in co-counsel arrangements. For more information on Local Counsel Arrangements, please contact an OMW lawyer.
From its inception, OMW has sought to add value to clients by packaging their unique expertise in tort and commercial litigation in a boutique firm setting. Because the firm’s practice has focus, when our clients have needs that extend beyond our expertise, we frequently refer them to lawyers who specialize in other disciplines. Likewise, we enjoy working with lawyers who refer their clients to us when presented with litigation. In such cases, OMW endeavors only to manage the client’s litigation, while the referring lawyer continues to serve as the client’s general counsel and/or to assist the client with its non-litigation needs. We have found that our referral relationships with other lawyers are mutually beneficial, and we continually seek opportunities to foster ongoing referral relationships.
