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 a New York Law Journal 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."
