Lawyers duly admitted to practice in the trial courts of any other jurisdiction may appear in any of the courts of this state provided (a) the pleadings are also signed by a lawyer duly admitted to practice in the State of Minnesota, and (b) such lawyer admitted in Minnesota is also present before the court, in chambers or in the courtroom or participates by telephone in any hearing conducted by telephone. In a subsequent appearance in the same action the out-of-state lawyer may, in the discretion of the court, conduct the proceedings without the presence of Minnesota counsel. The out-of-state lawyer is subject to all rules that apply to lawyers admitted in Minnesota, including rules related to e-filing.
Any lawyer appearing pursuant to this rule is subject to the disciplinary rules and regulations governing Minnesota lawyers and by applying to appear or appearing in any action is subject to the jurisdiction of the Minnesota courts.
