Spiro & Browne serves as local counsel for attorneys and clients in matters before both state and federal courts in Virginia, ranging from large Chapter 11 and other bankruptcy matters to major fraud and injury cases.
We are much more than just “appearance” counsel and a mailbox – we will be the harbor pilot for your transit through the local “waters,” providing critical guidance, resources and experience regarding local practices and procedures. We are thoroughly familiar with the unique procedures of the “Rocket Docket” in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, all bankruptcy courts in Virginia, as well as the pleading rules and pitfalls in all state trial and appellate courts.
The firm is serving as Virginia counsel to the relator (“whistleblower”) in the recently unsealed $1.15 Billion action on behalf of the Commonwealth of Virginia against investment banks alleged to have defrauded the Virginia Retirement System. This is the largest suit ever brought under the Virginia Fraud Against Taxpayers Act and is being handled by the Virginia Office of the Attorney General.
Spiro & Browne also has experience in serving as local counsel in various roles in large Chapter 11 cases, and can provide substantial guidance and value to out-of-state parties and counsel in these matters.
