The “TriBar”, which originally included designees of three New York groups - the Special Committee on Legal Opinions on Commercial Transactions of the New York County Lawyers’ Association, the Corporation Law Committee of the New York City Bar and the Special Committee on Legal Opinions of the New York State Bar Association - now includes members of the state bars of California, Delaware, Georgia, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Texas, and of the Allegheny County (Pittsburgh, Pa.)

Law. 591 (1998), Special Report of the TriBar Opinion Committee: U.C.C. Security Interest Opinions – Revised Article 9, 58 Bus.

The current projects of the TriBar include limited partnership opinions, opinions on clauses shifting risks and bring down opinions.
