In representation before bodies such as legislatures,
municipal councils, and executive and administrative agencies acting
in a rule-making or policy-making capacity, lawyers present facts, formulate
issues, and advance argument in the matters under consideration. The
decision-making body, like a court, should be able to rely on the integrity
of the submissions made to it. A lawyer appearing before such a body
should deal with it honestly and in conformity with applicable rules
 Lawyers have no exclusive right to appear before nonadjudicative bodies, as they do before a court. The requirements of this Rule therefore may subject lawyers to regulations inapplicable to advocates, such as nonlawyer lobbyists, who are not lawyers. However, legislatures and administrative agencies have a right to expect lawyers to deal with them as they deal with courts.
 This Rule does not apply to representation of a client in a negotiation or other bilateral transaction with a government agency; representation in such a transaction is governed by Rules 4.1 through 4.4.
 This Rule is closely related to Rules 3.3 through 3.5, which deal with conduct regarding tribunals. The term "tribunal," as defined in the Terminology section of these Rules, refers to adjudicative or quasi-adjudicative bodies.
