Defense Liaison Counsel Law and Legal Definition

A Defense Liaison counsel evolves when there are multiple parties in a given litigation. Often each defendant grouping in multiple defendant matters will have liaison counsel. Liaison counsel's functions are generally administrative, as this attorney will deal with plaintiff and codefendant counsel, as well as with the court. Properly undertaken, liaison counsel will serve as little or no roadblock to the interests involved or the defendant-specific substantive defense of the litigation.
