B-1, r. 17 - Regulation respecting the conciliation and arbitration procedure for the accounts of advocates

Full text
4. The syndic shall notify the advocate upon receipt of any application for conciliation with respect to one of his accounts. If the advocate cannot be informed personally, a notice given to the advocate’s office is deemed to have been given to the advocate.
The advocate may not institute proceedings to recover his professional fees once the syndic has notified him of the application for conciliation with respect to that account for fees and until the expiry of the prescribed period for the filing of an application for arbitration, or, if arbitration is applied for, until the Council of arbitration has rendered its decision.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, the syndic may allow such proceeding where there is reason to believe that, without it, the recovery of the debt would be jeopardized.
