Duty To Supervise

The New York State Bar Association Committee on Professional Ethics has recently opined as follows:

"The New York office of a multi-state firm may be managed by an associate or of-counsel attorney who is admitted in New York, and supervised by an out-of-state partner who is licensed in another state. The law firm is responsible for establishing procedures to ensure that the New York attorney complies with New York's disciplinary rules."

The full text of the opinion is linked here. (Mike Frisch)
