The advantages of using the virtual law firm model in mass crime proceedings are known. The concept of the virtual law firm was widely used by clients involved in mass crime and consisted of partnerships between large law firms. The creation of a virtual law firm team with a medium-sized law firm – which often has more tariff flexibility – is associated with specific advantages in the very early stages of a legal dispute and in several facets of the case in order to achieve the greatest benefit for the client.
In general, the virtual law firm team is made up of attorneys from multiple law firms to leverage the strengths and special experiences of different lawyers to provide an efficient and specialized defense. The first and dominant actor is often referred to as the “National Counsel,” made up of attorneys from a large law firm who are responsible for the overall strategic vision of the litigation. While all attorneys involved in the matter are experienced in the legal issues presented, the National Counsel is the “Head Coach” who ensures that each player fulfills their respective roles and that consistent and coordinated defense issues are brought forward throughout the litigation.
