CO-COUNSEL / SOLE COUNSEL
Would you like to acquire mass tort cases? Do you need a law firm to do the work?
Leaders in Mass Torts offers mass tort case acquisition and co-counseling services. Your firm can EARN 60% or more of the net legal fee by co-counseling with us.
We do the marketing and will give you qualified cases per your criteria with an intake and signed retainer/medical authorizations. We also offer guaranteed cases, which means that if after medical record review the case does not meet criteria, we replace it with another case free of charge. There is no drop off or fall out of cases. You will have a guaranteed number of viable cases.
If you would like us to workup the cases (handling client communication, obtaining and reviewing medical records to confirm proof of use/device and injury, and completing plaintiff profile forms), you can co-counsel with us. You would receive up to 60% of the net attorneys’ fees, our firm would receive 20%, and the MDL leadership firm we work with for filing/settlement/trial would receive 20%. If you are in leadership, we can send the cases back to your firm after workup and you would receive up to 80% of the net attorneys’ fees.
If your firm wishes to purchase a mass tort case, we have options to suit your logistic capabilities and resources. No matter which you choose, we will have done the preliminary legwork for you: identifying trending cases, chasing leads, advertising, and qualifying and signing clients. We offer an off-the-shelf case, ready to go—no assembly required.

What you do from there depends on your goals and capacity. You can acquire a mass tort as either a sole counsel or a co-counsel.
Purchasing a case as a sole counsel is exactly what it sounds like. You buy the case from us in a simple transaction and take it from there. This option costs more upfront than buying as a co-counsel, but you will also recoup 100% of the attorneys’ fees from any settlement—which, with mass torts, can potentially be very lucrative.
On the other hand, purchasing as sole counsel requires not only a greater investment but taking on more risk. As you know, mass tort cases are already a high-risk, high-reward venture in almost every case. They often take a long time to reach a settlement, and there is no guarantee that a transferee judge will not dismiss the case or rule against you in summary judgment. This option is usually best for firms that have deep resources and infrastructure to see mass tort cases through to completion.
Buying as a co-counsel costs less on the front-end, and Leaders in Mass Torts will be there to assist you as the point of contact for your clients, handling initial intake and evaluating qualifying criteria. Depending on what works best for your firm, we can further split the workload from there and take on aspects of mass tort cases that you do not feel as though you have the capabilities or desire to deal with. As a co-counsel, we will split the eventual attorneys’ fees from a settlement with you.
This, of course, means less risk for your firm, as your initial investment is lower. You will also have assistance as you move the case forward. This option is often ideal for firms that are newer to mass torts or that lack access to the vast reserves of capital it can take to scale up institutional capacity and prosecute a case to a resolution.
You know better than anyone else what your firm has the capability to handle. Our job is to make the process as seamless as possible. At Leaders in Mass Torts, we want to be a one-stop shop for all your firm’s mass-tort needs.
