If a partner puts both his and the associate name on a pleading without associate having worked on it or knowing about the said pleading, and the firm gets sanctioned (say rule 11 for instance), does it mean that the associate is one of the sanctioned attorneys? Like it affects the associate’s later pro hac vice or insurance applications where it asks whether associate has been sanctioned?

So it wasn't filed under your filing credentials? And you weren't the signing party? But your name appeared on the filing as an attorney of record?

Probably, unless you clarify with the court that it was done without your consent. I would think this would fall under "submitting" if nothing else. Maybe submit a question to your bar though.

Has someone moved for sanctions against you personally?

There’s different rules under which the court can impose sanctions and they all have different standards. I’ve seen situations where a court has sanctioned everyone on the signature block but that seems to be extremely rare and courts generally recognize that associates are acting under a partner’s direction. If you received a rule 11 letter and you truly believe the conduct to be sanctionable I’d discuss it internally with your firm’s counsel.
