PC: 402623/402623E

Since its original publication more than 20 years ago, Attorney Escrow Accounts: Rules, Regulations and Related Topics, has become the go-to source for information and guidance on attorney escrow in New York. Now in its Fifth Edition, Attorney Escrow Accounts continues to be an important reference for both newly admitted and seasoned attorneys thanks to its extensive discussion of the legal and ethical issues attorneys encounter as they handle client funds.


This new edition revises and updates coverage of handling escrow funds, escrow agreements, IOLA accounts, and the Lawyers’ Fund for Client Protection of the State of New York. Also included is a new chapter, “How to Open and Manage Escrow Accounts,” which provides the reader with practical guidance on how and where to set up an IOLA account, the bookkeeping requirements for properly maintaining an escrow account, some practical examples of the steps to take when an attorney receives various types of escrow funds, and the steps to be taken upon the death of the sole owner of an IOLA account. The revised Appendix is itself a valuable resource of model forms and pertinent rules, statutes, and ethics opinions. 

 A must-have for every attorney who practices in New York State!
