Ethics Committee Opinion
Opinion #63 - 10/16/1967
Topic: Mailing Legal Bulletins to Clients
Digest: Lawyer may send form letter to foreign corporation
retainer clients describing changes in U.S. and local laws
A member of the New York Bar practicing in a foreign country desires
to send to retainer clients doing business in such country a monthly
form letter describing current changes in U.S. and local laws of
interest to foreign corporations doing business in that country. He asks
whether there would be any ethical objection.
Subject to such professional and legal restrictions as may apply in
the country involved, it is the Committee's opinion that the proposed
practice would not be improper as applied to a member of the New York
Bar, provided it is sent only to clients.
