A: Attorneys in the United States do take an oath to uphold the Constitution, but representing foreign entities or individuals in litigation does not inherently breach that oath. U.S. lawyers frequently represent foreign clients in a variety of legal matters, including lawsuits. The mere act of joining a lawsuit on behalf of a foreign entity against a U.S. industry is not automatically a disbarment offense. Disbarment typically arises from serious ethical or criminal misconduct.

If you believe an attorney is acting unethically, you can file a complaint with the state bar where the attorney is licensed. They will evaluate the complaint to determine if any ethical rules were violated. Remember, the legal profession is bound by rules of professional conduct, but representation of diverse clients, including foreign entities, is a foundational aspect of the adversarial system.
