Do You Have Boundary Issues? Ethical Pitfalls in Multi-Jurisdictional Practice


Attorneys who represent clients or handle matters in other jurisdictions have to be careful not to cross the line into the unauthorized practice of law. This seminar will provide a map that lawyers can use to avoid crossing into dangerous ethical territory. 

We will cover each part of ABA Model Rule 5.5, several significant cases, a recent ABA Formal Opinion regarding remote practice in jurisdictions in which an attorney is not licensed, and state trends in amending the rule to accommodate some of the realities of modern practice.
