New NY Ethics Rule

May 3, 2011 at 8:05 am | Posted in New York Legal | Leave a comment

According to the United States Law Week: “In-house attorneys who are licensed somewhere other than New York may now legally perform nonlitigation work in New York under a special in-house counsel registration rule that took effect April 20. The new rule, codified at Title 22 New York Rules and Regulations §§522.1 et seq., allows out-of-state lawyers who are in good standing elsewhere to perform limited legal services in New York on behalf of their employer, so long as the lawyers pay the state’s $375 biennial registration fee, promise to abide by the rules governing New York lawyers, and agree to submit to local disciplinary regulation.”
