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."
