Michigan Supreme Court amendment delays the implementation of a rule amendment

Quick Inquiry


The Michigan Supreme Court issued an order that delays the implementation of a rule amendment that would have impacted law firm advertising.

On Aug. 30, 2018 the court stated that it would defer the amendment of MRPC Rule 7.2 that was scheduled to take effect Sept. 1 until further order of the court.

The court issued a May 30, order that was set to amend language in Section D of MRPC Rule 7.2 to state: “Services of a lawyer or law firm that are advertised under the heading of a phone number, web address, or trade name shall identify the name, office address, and business telephone number of at least one lawyer responsible for the content of the advertisement.”
