What Does “Of Counsel” Mean?

The title “Of Counsel” is used to denote an experienced attorney who has a close relationship with a law firm, providing legal services and guidance, without being a partner or associate. Attorneys who join a firm as Of Counsel are typically seasoned legal professionals with established practices and reputations. They lend their skills and knowledge to the firm on a full-time or part-time basis while maintaining some autonomy.
