We're having issues getting GMB to take 'Lawyer' as a category for businesses in Canada. 

 

We noticed this behavior this afternoon after it was brought to our attention that our businesses were showing up as 'attorney'.  We checked our dashboards and saw the category was selected properly, but the listing is showing 'attorney', upon removing 'lawyer' and trying to re-add it the auto-population of that category was not appearing and it was showing the following error:

I've pinged GMB support on Twitter and some of the TC's but wanted to make sure I put a post on here... we saw this same error a year ago (we've also pinged our support rep and I whispered into a sea-shell too).

I'll ask about this. Have you seen it on any other categories or just this one?

So far this is the only category we've noticed.  I'll append this if we discover anymore.
