In the Appellate Division, the Second Department wants to be notified if counsel of record has retained appellate counsel. Where a notice of appearance is not supplied to the Second Department, appellate counsel will not be able to act in any capacity on behalf of the law firm that has retained them.

The notice of appearance may be filed as soon as appellate counsel has been retained or it may be filed at the time of filing a notice of appeal or any other document at the Appellate Division.
