987 Change of solicitor

(1) A party may, at any stage of a proceeding and without an order, appoint another solicitor in place of the solicitor then acting for the party.
(2) If a party appoints another solicitor, the newly appointed solicitor must—
(a) as soon as practicable after being appointed, file and serve on all parties and the party’s former solicitor a notice of change of solicitor 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.
(3) The party’s former solicitor remains the solicitor on the record until the newly appointed solicitor serves the notice of change of solicitor on the former solicitor.
(4) When a notice in respect of 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.
