Service of Process to Virtual Office

, New York Law Journal


I serve as the chair of the Committee on Professional Ethics for the New York City Bar Association. The committee recently issued a formal opinion concerning the use of virtual law offices by New York attorneys. We concluded that it is permissible for New York lawyers to use the street address of a virtual law office as the "principal law office address" under Rule 7.1(h) of the New York Rules of Professional Conduct, as well as on business cards, letterhead and law firm websites.

    I‘m considerably pleased with my membership to the New York Law Journal. Other media sites can take days or weeks to deliver high end articles. Not forgetting, you keep to the point, as opposed to throwing in your own perceptions. Thank you for yet another outstanding article.
