Multijurisdictional Practice

While many jurisdictions permit non-locally barred in-house attorneys to practice law for their employer-client as long as they are in good standing in another state, this exception does not always extend to providing pro bono services.  When it does, it typically comes with difficult and unnecessary restrictions that limit and discourage in-house attorneys’ pro bono participation.
