Move to Modify Conflicts and Displinary Rules for Multijurisdictional Practice

An interesting article in the New York Law Journal points out a move by the City Bar to modify conflicts and disciplinary rules to take into account the growing trend of lawyers practicing across jurisdictions. The proposed changes would let lawyers follow local rules for non-litigation matters brought out-of-state.

These changes would also relax conflicts and ethical screening restrictions in some instances where New York firms have London offices. For more information, see the text of the proposed changes.
