(1) An Advocate and Solicitor may insert in any newspaper, newsletter or law journal, or send to any person who is his or his firm's client, or with whom he has professional dealings, a notice for the purpose of conveying information regarding-
(a) the commencement or dissolution of his practice;
(b) the merger or association of his practice with the practice of any other Advocate and Solicitor or firm;
(c) the opening of any new branch of his firm;
(d) the admission, withdrawal, retirement, termination or resignation of any Advocate and Solicitor to or from his firm, or the death of any Advocate and Solicitor practising in his firm;
(e) any change in the name, address or telecommunication numbers of his firm; or
(f) such other matters as may be approved in writing by the Bar Council.
(2) An Advocate and Solicitor may insert in any newspaper, newsletter or law journal a notice regarding a vacant position in his firm and may in that notice state approved information, but the statement must not be of such a nature as to reasonably give rise, in the opinion of the Bar Council, to an inference that he is attempting, through the notice, to publicize his practice or the practice of his firm in a manner inconsistent with these Rules.
(3) An Advocate and Solicitor who has publicized through a notice under subrule (1) or (2) shall cause a copy of the notice to be kept at his principal place of business for a period of at least 12 months from the date of its publication, and shall, upon being requested to do so by the Bar Council, produce a copy of the notice to the Bar Council for inspection within the time as specified by the Bar Council.
