A new law (22 NYCRR Part 522) took effect in the state of New York on April 20, 2011. This provision enables out-of-state in-house attorneys to advise single employer entities or their organizational affiliates in New York, so long as the attorneys are registered with the New York Appellate Division courts. The new rule also permits counseling of the New York entity’s employees, directors and officers. Note that out-of-state attorneys remain restricted from appearing before agencies and tribunals in New York without pro hac vice admission.
