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.
