Out-of-state attorneys representing Nevada clients in extra-judicial matters pending in or substantially related to Nevada are required to register with the State Bar of Nevada by filing an Annual Report each calendar year. This registration is required by Nevada Rule of Professional Conduct 5.5A, regarding the Unauthorized Practice of Law.
Copies of the form
are available on the state bar's website. A reporting fee of $150 is required.
Members of the State Bar of Nevada can assist their fellow counsel by reminding them of this requirement and providing them with the information needed to access the required forms. This requirement frequently applies in transactional matters, such as out-of-state real estate transactions.
