41-Non-Virginia Lawyers

[WITHDRAWN 9/16] Virginia lawyers may not form a partnership or LLC with foreign legal consultants (not admitted in any state) if any of the activities would constitute the practice of law. [The new foreign legal consultant rule (Rule1A:7) permits foreign legal consultants to be partners of Virginia firms in certain situations.]
