    Default When Legal Opinions Signed by People Other Than Law Firm Partners

    My question involves business law in the state of: new york or international

    Normally legal opinions are signed by a partner or with the name of the firm and a partner's signature. Is is possible and are there examples of legal opinions signed by senior associates, 'of counsel' or others than partners of the firm?

    Default Re: When Legal Opinions Signed by People Other Than Law Firm Partners

    There are a lot of countries in the concept, "International". If you want to research the law of any nation other than the U.S., go for it - but this is a U.S.-only forum.

    Do you mean an opinion letter? A "legal opinion" would normally reference an opinion of a court deciding an issue or case.

    If you mean "opinion letter", an opinion letter can be signed by the lawyer giving the opinion whether or not he is a partner. If you want a partner to sign an opinion letter as opposed to an associate, I expect the only thing standing between you and what you want is the partner's higher hourly rate.
