Status Revoked

Many states have rules that permit attorneys licensed in foreign countries to be admitted to practice on a limited basis as foreign legal consultants. The New York Appellate Division for the First Judicial Department had admitted an Italian lawyer as a foreign legal consultant and today revoked his status and struck the attorney from the rolls of licensed foreign legal consultants. The attorney had conceded that he had practiced law beyond permissible limitations. This the first disciplinary order that I have seen taking action against a foreign legal consultant. (Mike Frisch)
