Think Globally, Act Locally:
Your Ethical Duties As Local Counsel
Although you may associate this phrase with a poster in your elementary school encouraging you to recycle, it can now serve as your mantra when you are retained as local counsel. The obligation to "think globally, act locally" perfectly captures the balance you must strike as local counsel. While lead counsel may mistakenly attempt to limit your role to only appearing for local hearings, your duties to the client and ethical obligations are much more broad.
