A complaint instituting a disciplinary proceeding shall:
Name the practitioner, who may then be referred to as the "respondent."
Give a plain and concise description of the alleged violations of the Disciplinary Rules by the practitioner.
State the place and time for filing an answer by the respondent.
State that a decision by default may be entered against the respondent if an answer is not timely filed.

A complaint will be deemed sufficient if it fairly informs the respondent of any violation of the Disciplinary Rules which form the basis for the disciplinary proceeding so that the respondent is able to adequately prepare a defense.
