A new global business reality is transforming the practice of law. Nowhere is this transformation more apparent than in the areas of multijurisdictional and multidisciplinary practice. These two trends, toward practice across jurisdictional boundaries on the one hand and across professional boundaries on the other, are engaging the attention of lawyers everywhere. Recent events involving Enron Corporation and the Arthur Andersen accounting firm have raised new questions about the efficacy of these emerging trends and remind lawyers that these issues retain their currency.
