MULTIJURISDICTIONAL PRACTICE: THE ETHICS OF LAWYERING HERE, THERE, AND ANYWHERE
The practice of law for most energy attorneys in the United States is truly multijurisdictional. Multijurisdictional practice includes services provided by attorneys physically present in a jurisdiction where they may not be admitted.  Additionally, an attorney’s "virtual presence” by phone, teleconference, e-mail, internet, etc. may present ethical issues.  Serious issues such as the potential unauthorized practice of law, violation of ethics rules, and choice of law for ethics rules and disciplinary proceedings regarding multijurisdictional practice will be discussed.  Learn the latest developments in this evolving area of the law.
