N.Y. Comp. Codes R. & Regs. Tit. 22 § 202.70.1 - Appearance by Counsel with Knowledge and Authority

(a) Counsel who appear in the Commercial Division must be fully familiar with the case in regard to which they appear and fully authorized to enter into agreements, both substantive and procedural, on behalf of their clients. Counsel should also be prepared to discuss any motions that have been submitted and are outstanding. Failure to comply with this rule may be regarded as a default and dealt with appropriately. See Rule 12 of this subdivision.
(b) Consistent with the requirements of Rule 11-c, counsel for all parties who appear at the preliminary conference shall be sufficiently versed in matters relating to their clients' technological systems to discuss competently all issues relating to electronic discovery. Counsel may bring a client representative or outside expert to assist in such discussions.
(c) It is important that counsel be on time for all scheduled appearances.
(d) Counsel may request the court's permission to participate in court conferences and oral arguments of motions from remote locations through use of videoconferencing or other technologies. Such requests will be granted in the court's discretion for good cause shown; however, nothing contained in this subsection (d) is intended to limit any rights which counsel may otherwise have to participate in court proceedings by appearing in person.
