Local Counsel

The attorneys at Assouline & Berlowe regularly act as Local Counsel to out-of-state law firms litigating in state, federal, and bankruptcy courts in Florida.

Both major large international firms as well as small law firms have confidently relied on the experience of Assouline & Berlowe's litigation attorneys to appreciate, understand in practice, and better predict how Florida Judges will apply specific local rules and procedures to best navigate their cases.

Assouline & Berlowe's attorneys have worked with plaintiffs' counsels to file new lawsuits and have also appeared in pending cases throughout the State of Florida, and most particularly in Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach Counties, where Assouline & Berlowe maintains its three physical offices.

Also, Assouline & Berlowe attorneys have assisted and sponsored out of state attorneys so that they can be admitted to a Florida state, federal, or bankruptcy court on a pro hac vice basis.

Assouline & Berlowe attorneys have worked on a wide array of cases supporting out-of-state law firms. For example, our attorneys have been involved in several contested domestication of judgment actions and related post-judgment collections efforts, including obtaining and enforcing writs of garnishment, obtaining charging liens against limited liability company membership interests, and initiating proceedings supplementary under Florida Statute § 56.29 against third parties in possession of judgment debtors' property. Our attorneys have worked on both international and domestic judgment domestication actions, through collections.

Although Florida is known as being a haven for debtors trying to hide assets, the team at Assouline & Berlowe is experienced in navigating the collections process to recover funds to creditors holding judgments.

Assouline & Berlowe also acts as local counsel for contested Intellectual Property litigation matters in Florida courts, most commonly in federal court.

One very specific area is claims under the Hatch-Waxman Act, also known as The Drug Price Competition and Patent Term Restoration Act. These types of claims relate to the process for pharmaceutical manufacturers to file an Abbreviated New Drug Application (ANDA) for approval of a generic drug by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Assouline & Berlowe is also well qualified to handle local counsel representation in virtually any type of employment, labor, or commercial related litigation in Florida.

If your case brings you to a Florida court, the attorneys at Assouline & Berlowe are well equipped to support your efforts in Florida and make sure you comply with Florida specific rules and procedures.
