Please join the New York State Bar Association, International Section with the Florida Bar Association, International Law Section for a Special Ethics Panel.
Join us for a CLE-accredited program focused on the implications of the recent decisions in Schoenefeld v. Schneiderman, No. 11-4283 (2d Cir., April 22, 2016) and Schoenefeld v. State, 25 N.Y.3d 22 (N.Y. 2015), which, collectively, require attorneys practicing in New York to maintain a physical office in the State. For Florida attorneys who are licensed in and practice in New York, these decisions can have significant practical effects, and the CLE will address those issues. This unprecedented panel includes the lead plantiff, Ekaterina Schoenefeld, so you can hear directly from those involved in this interesting case.
