Tom Spahn’s annual ethics program focuses on what lawyers can and cannot do in states where they are not licensed to practice law. It covers in-house litigation and transactional lawyers, and focuses on new trends in this important area.
- What is the effect of lawyers practicing in states where they are not licensed?
- How can a litigator appear in another state's court?
- Can lawyers handle arbitrations and other non-court proceedings in states where they are not licensed?
- Can a lawyer not licensed in a state practice just before federal court there, or just practice "federal" law there?
- Are there risks in lawyers practicing "virtually" in another state?
- What can transactional lawyers do in states where they are not licensed?
- Do the same multijurisdictional rules apply to in house lawyers as to outside lawyers?
- What can foreign lawyers do in the United States?
