If staff attorneys name the firm as their designated interim administrator, circuit court appointment of an interim administrator will not be necessary if all the requirements of MCR 9.303 are followed.
Because the State Bar of Michigan is required to verify all designated interim administrators are willing to serve, all firm nominations must also identify a licensed Michigan attorney with the firm other than themselves to accept the designation. Attorneys from outside your firm also could designate your firm as interim administrator.
Attorneys can fulfill their Rule 21 requirements — or update previous selections — at any time by logging in at michbar.org/MemberArea.
