Kirsten Scheurer Branigan and Lori Ann Buza co-authored “Rule Changes Ease ADR Process for Cross-Border Attorneys” on March 28, 2011 that was published in the New Jersey Law Journal. On Sept. 1, 2010, an often-criticized provision of the New Jersey Rules of Professional Conduct (RPC) was eliminated. The provision, within Section 5.5, pertained to the “lawful” practice of law in connection with alter¬native dispute resolution (ADR). Unlike the prior language, RPC 5.5 now per¬mits out-of-state attorneys to represent clients in New Jersey during ADR with¬out having to hire local counsel, register with the New Jersey Supreme Court or pay a court fee. This puts into effect an amendment adopted by the New Jersey Supreme Court on July 23, 2010.
