Have you recently hired or plan to hire a non New York licensed attorney to serve as in-house counsel1 in your New York office to advise your business about New York legal issues? If so, your in-house counsel must comply with new registration requirements of Part 522 of the Rules of the Court of Appeals within thirty days of the commencement of such employment. The new rule already required existing in-house counsel to register within 90 days of the April 20, 2010 effective date. Non compliance with the registration rule is deemed to be professional misconduct.
