Morvillo Abramowitz Partner Edward M. Spiro Quoted in the New York Law Journal

10.18.16

On October 18, 2016, Morvillo Abramowitz partner Edward M. Spiro was quoted in an article titled, “Rights of Nonparty, Nonwitnesses Factored in Law Firm's Disqualification.” The article addresses the standard for disqualification in a new context, one where a motion to disqualify is made by a nonparty, nonwitness. “It's an unusual case," Ed notes, explaining that "it is likely that, in expanding application of the substantial relationship test to a nonparty nonwitness, the court was influenced by the government's articulation of a significant governmental interest, namely, the need to procure assistance from crime victims."
