(1) If a party acts in person in a proceeding and later appoints a solicitor, the solicitor must—
(a) as soon as practicable, file and serve on all other parties notice of the solicitor’s appointment in the approved form; and
(b) state in the notice the same details that would be required under rule 17 for an originating process or a notice of intention to defend.
(2) If a party appoints a solicitor and later decides to act in person, the party must—
(a) as soon as practicable, file and serve on all other parties and the party’s former solicitor a notice in the approved form the party is acting in person; and
(b) state in the notice the same details that would be required under rule 17 for an originating process or a notice of intention to defend.
(3) The party’s former solicitor remains the solicitor on the record until the party serves the notice on the former solicitor.
(4) When a notice in relation to a party is served under this rule, the party’s address for service becomes the address for service that would have applied if the notice were an originating process or notice of intention to defend.
