Ethical Considerations of Multijurisdictional Practice

Learn and understand how to properly practice law outside of your jurisdiction.

Transactional lawyers, house counsel, and attorneys with transient or multistate clients are among the many lawyers who find themselves providing legal services or offering legal advice outside their licensed jurisdiction(s). If your client is in multistate ADR, or is defending an out-of-state lawsuit, or is purchasing foreign real estate, or has a security interest out-of-state, or is called away to testify, you may become embroiled in legal affairs beyond your license. If you are not admitted in the foreign jurisdiction, you may be engaging in the unauthorized practice of law, exposing yourself to criminal, as well as disciplinary, sanctions. This information will help you decide how to handle your out-of-state lawyering. Learn to determine whether your activity constitutes the practice of law in a second jurisdiction, and if so, how to avoid problems. It may be advisable to appear pro hac vice, to substitute local counsel, or, perhaps, to become barred in that state. Focusing on the ABA's Model Rule 5.5 (Unauthorized Practice of Law) in addition to the New Jersey rule), we consider how to avoid or handle the problems that arise when our practices cross state lines.
