Re:  Vertex Legal Protection Limited
Conduct  of Elorm Ahiati Esq.

The Disciplinary Committee of the General Legal Council (“the Committee”), at its meeting held on 22nd March 2018, after a preliminary enquiry at which you were present, decided that you must be reprimanded for your conduct in this matter to wit:

As a lawyer, you failed to adhere to Rule 2(5) and Rule 8 of the Legal Profession (Professional Conduct and Etiquette) Rules, 1969 L.I. 613 which prohibits the solicitation for legal work and the sharing of legal fees with non-lawyers.

By being engaged in the establishment of Vertex Legal Protection, a limited liability company which is not a law firm, but charges legal fees upfront and purports to negotiate with lawyers regarding their legal fees for services rendered to their clients, you contravened Rule 2(5) of L.I. 613.The Committee has noted your subsequent resignation as a shareholder director of the Company.

By this letter, you are hereby reprimanded for your unacceptable conduct and warned to be more circumspect as a lawyer. The Council will not endorse any such professional misconduct from you in the future.

Please note that this letter will be published on the Council’s website after delivery to you.
