Walters & Wasylyna’s lawyers frequently serve as local counsel to represent businesses and persons that have been sued or that need to file lawsuits in the State Courts of Northeast Ohio and the U.S. Federal Court for the Northern District of Ohio. The local rules, customs, and issues of form are often unknown or confusing to practitioners from other parts of the country, so it is important to retain reliable local counsel.
Walters & Wasylyna practices routinely in the areas of business litigation and intellectual property, including a robust practice of patent prosecution. Once retained as local counsel, we work closely with primary counsel to help determine the best courses of action, and whether to seek dismissals or jurisdictional transfers. If the case stays in our jurisdiction, we stand ready to work with primary counsel to provide all levels of services throughout the case. In addition to all Courts in Ohio, our lawyers are admitted to the 3rd, 6th, 9th, and Federal Circuit Courts of Appeal, as well as the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
