Legal representation. You may want to obtain an attorney to represent you. Some attorneys specialize in securities matters. An individual may represent him or her self. An individual who is not an attorney may not represent any one else, including his or her spouse. Effective July 1, 2003, a legal entity, such as a corporation or limited liability company, may be represented by a full-time officer, partner, member or manager of a limited liability company, or employee, provided that: the legal entity has specifically authorized such person to represent it in the particular matter; such representation is not the person’s primary duty to the legal entity, but secondary or incidental to other duties relating to the management or operation of the legal entity; and the person is not receiving separate or additional compensation (other than reimbursement for costs) for such representation. An out-of-state attorney may be admitted pro hac vice to appear before the Corporation Commission. Rules 31 and 33, Rules of the Arizona Supreme Court.
