Local Rule 2014. ATTORNEYS OF RECORD

(a) Appearances.An attorney who appears in a case on behalf of a party is the attorney of record for the party for any and all purposes except adversary proceedings until an order is entered permitting the withdrawal of the attorney or the case is closed or dismissed. If a case is reopened, an attorney may move to withdraw from the case or terminate the attorney’s electronic service if the attorney is no longer attorney of record for the party.

(1) An attorney approved as special counsel for the bankruptcy estate and/or the debtor under 11 U.S.C. § 327(e) (or any other applicable code section) is attorney of record for that special purpose only. The attorney is attorney of record for the special purpose until an order is entered permitting the withdrawal of the attorney or the case is closed or dismissed.

(2) Unless the court orders otherwise or further appearance is made in an adversary proceeding, an attorney who has appeared for a party only in the main bankruptcy case is not automatically the attorney of record for the party in the adversary proceeding.

(b) Substitution of Attorney. A stipulation and order permitting substitution of attorney may be submitted ex parte if:

(1) the substitution is signed by the client, the withdrawing attorney and the substitution attorney; and

(2) the substituting attorney acknowledges responsibility for all pending dates and deadlines. Notwithstanding this provision, the court may require that requests for substitution of attorney be set on noticed hearing. In the event that the withdrawing attorney is disbarred, suspended, or no longer in good standing to represent the client, such attorney’s signature is not required for the substitution.

(c) Withdrawals. See LR IA 10-6 of the Local Rules of Practice for the United States District Court for the District of Nevada.
