If you are engaged as a professional solicitor or counsel in Mississippi you are required under section 79-11-501 et. seq. of the Mississippi Code Supplement 1997 to file a Mississippi Professional Solicitor or Counsel Bond as a condition of licensure.
A surety bond protects the party requesting the bond, the Obligee, against any financial losses as a result of poor financial decisions, damages, unethical decisions, or a failure to follow state and local laws on the part of you, the Principal. The Mississippi Professional Solicitor or Counsel Bond holds you accountable for your business decisions.
By possessing a Mississippi Professional Solicitor or Counsel Bond, you are telling your Obligee that you can be trusted as a Principal and that you stand behind your business decisions.
