Proposed Amendments to Illinois Supreme Court Rules

The ISBA Bar News reported in its September 2008 edition (Volume 49, No. 3) that the Illinois Supreme Court Rules Committee is considering amendments to Rule 1.15 regarding advance payment retainers.

The proposed amendments stem, in part, from the 2007 Illinois Supreme Court decision in Dowling v. Chicago Options Associates, Inc., et al., 226 Ill.2d 277 (Ill. 2007). The Committee on Professional Responsibility and the Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission each submitted proposals.

Additional information is available at the Illinois Supreme Court’s website.
