“You’re a Lawyer from Where?” – MJP

Positions for and against The Florida Bar proposed rule changes addressing lawyers practicing across state boundaries were argued last month to the Florida Supreme Court. The Florida Bar proposed allowing out-of-state lawyers to come into Florida to handle transactions, arbitrations, mediations and other dispute resolution matters as long as there is a “nexus” – a client who resides in or has a business where the lawyer is admitted or if it relates to an area of the lawyer’s practice. To read more about the debate, read this article in the current issue of The Florida Bar News.
