Unlicensed General Counsel Should Not Lose the Client Its Privilege

That's the perfectly reasonable position taken by this op-ed piece from the National Law Journal (and Law.com), echoing as well Jeff's earlier call to take MR 5.5(d) seriously on its common-sense flexibility regarding corporate counsel in good standing with some state's bar but not licensed in the corporation's home state.  The writers note that 5.5(d) "would largely cure these problems but it has not yet been uniformly implemented."  [Alan Childress]
