The Professionals, Cons And Challenges of Establishing And Imposing A Scale of Expenses for Authorized Companies in Nigeria

INTRODUCTION

 

It was Oscar Wilde who mentioned that “These days individuals know the value of all the things and the worth of nothing”. This feels prophetic however even worse than he had postulated, particularly within the enterprise of offering authorized companies. The fact is that these days most individuals in Nigeria know the value of nothing and maybe additionally, the worth of nothing whereas quantifying the consideration for authorized companies rendered in Nigeria. “What has the lawyer accomplished to earn such humongous payment?” has change into the mantra. The lawyer is without end inundated with the uphill activity of constructing his shopper see the intangible companies he has rendered and the way with out them the shopper would have been put to higher expense or lesser benefit. Certainly the dexterity that comes with such profitable clarification is just not possess by all legal professionals. Whereas this underscores the significance of getting a scale of cost to control charges for authorized service, it’s much more necessary within the quest of robing the authorized occupation in her hitherto noble regalia. We should due to this fact appraise what a scale of cost is, the benefits, disadvantages and challenges of implementing such for authorized companies in Nigeria.

As with all authorized terminology, “Scale of Cost” has defied a mechanical and universally acceptable definition. Translegal considers it to be “a listing displaying the completely different costs that have to be paid, particularly for varied companies provided whereas Longman solely outlined ‘scale Payment’ as a means of charging for authorized work based mostly on a normal scale, moderately than based mostly on the quantity of labor accomplished.

HISTORICAL APPRAISAL OF SCALE OF CHARGES FOR LEGAL SERVICES AND OUR EXTANT LAWS

One of many few makes an attempt at regulating the size for authorized companies in Nigeria is Part 15(1) of the Authorized Practitioners’ Act of 1975 (the LPA) which established the Authorized Practitioners Remuneration Committee (the LPRC) and by Part 15(3) of identical act, grant the LPRC the facility to make order regulating typically the costs of Authorized Practitioners in sure areas.

It was pursuant to mentioned S. 15(3) of the LPA that solely the Authorized Practitioners (Remuneration for Authorized Documentation and different Land Issues) Order 1991 (the 1991 Order) was made, and  gives a tenet  just for remuneration in respect of  authorized documentation (solicitorship) and different land associated issues. The LPA merely specified the powers of the LPRC, no enforcement mechanism or physique was established to implement the powers vested on the LPRC, therefore making the provisions of the 1991 Order merely a tenet for fee-scaling some elements of authorized companies in Nigeria.

A extra tidy and holistic effort at regulating the size for authorized service is seen at Guidelines 48 to 54 of the Guidelines of Skilled Conduct  2007 hereinafter known as (the RPC). Rule 48 (1) of the RPC within the try to control the charges for authorized companies finally ends up making normal and obscure suggestion {that a} lawyer is entitled to “sufficient remuneration for his companies”. Respectfully, the phrase “sufficient” is relative and open to completely different interpretations. And although Rule 52 of the RPC additional gives that “the skilled charges charged by a lawyer for his companies shall be affordable and commensurate with the companies rendered; and accordingly the lawyer shall not cost payment that are extreme or too low”, what’s ‘affordable and commensurate’  is a measure of 1’s subjectivity nonetheless. The RPC, being a subsidiary laws itself and never a penal legislation[i] beneath which a defaulter could be charged and convicted in a daily courtroom, retains making admonitions moderately than present a compulsory scale of prices.[ii]

 

ADVANTAGES OF ENFORCING A SCALE OF CHARGES FOR LEGAL SERVICES IN NIGERIA.

Curiously, implementing a scale of cost is a double-edged sword that protects the curiosity of the legal professionals on the one hand, and the shoppers’ however. Some legal professionals are responsible of overcharging shoppers, and much more for undercharging shoppers. A scale of cost will guarantee neither occasion is exploited.

In the identical vein, a uniform scale will guarantee higher remuneration for authorized companies and largely assist in regulating the authorized occupation; and supply worth for intangible companies. In actual fact, utilizing the UK as a case-study, solicitors are topic to the Solicitors Regulation Authority’s (SRA) Worth Transparency Guidelines. Companies are additionally required to publish value and repair info on their web sites for sure areas of observe.[iii] Implementing this construction will assist forestall value hike and backstabbing from different members of the occupation who in an effort to draw extra shoppers promote themselves brief, and supply authorized companies for paltry sums.

 

DISADVANTAGES AND CHALLENGES OF ENFORCING A SCALE OF CHARGES FOR LEGAL SERVICES IN NIGERIA

The Greek thinker Confucius as soon as mentioned that “the gem can’t be polished with out friction, nor man perfected with out trials”. I dare say neither can a Scale of Expenses be established with out its shortcomings nor enforced with out challenges.

It’s not solely herculean to adequately entry the standard and quantum of authorized companies rendered, however even tougher to appropriately monetize the worth of authorized companies. There’s the opportunity of undervaluing or overvaluing the authorized companies and in whichever case, a celebration is being exploited.  Moreover, Rule 52(1) of the R.PC has supplied that it’s illegal for a authorized practitioner to overcharge and even undercharge his authorized Companies. The RPC doesn’t lay down the precise quantity a Authorized Practitioner should cost a shopper however guides as to the right way to go about it.[iv]

Moreso, taking into account the time, ability and labour; the novelty and issue of the issue to be solved and different incidental components required to garner the experience and know-how every case  calls for, implementing identical scale of cost for authorized companies could also be inflexible and unequitable. If the time, effort and cash invested are completely different, why then ought to the identical scale of cost be enforced on all? Additionally, if a shopper can not afford the charges on the size of prices, they are going to be shut from accessing authorized companies and justice could additional change into a mirage for the indigent.

It might even be argued that since shoppers don’t possess the identical diploma of wealth, implementing the identical scale of prices on them will probably be unfair and inequitable. A extra equitable factor to do must be every shopper paying proportional to the diploma of wealth they possess. Even then this argument is just not with out its flaws, as an example who quantifies the wealth of every shopper possesses and the way? The reply to those questions for some practising legal professionals, is a case of instinct not backed by empirical proof; and generally based mostly on the disposition, charisma and look of the shoppers.

Native companies could also be at a drawback when coping with worldwide shoppers since they are going to be restricted to charging inside the scale. Nevertheless, this anomaly could be remedied by incorporating completely different and separate charges for worldwide shoppers on the size of prices.

It is going to be detrimental to legal professionals and shoppers to invoice for charges utilizing identical scale when there’s a distinction or disparity in location, lifestyle and incidental value for every authorized companies. As an illustration, the price of effecting a search, registering and perfecting a doc on land  in Lagos will probably be costlier in comparison with Zamfara State or Ondo State. Offering a construction of scales prices, partitioned based on Geo-political zones, lifestyle and different associated components, will assist obtain an equitable scale of cost.

 

THE WAY FORWARD

Edward Counsel, a thinker, as soon as mentioned “Legal guidelines change because the seasons” and so ought to our legal guidelines. The LPA must be amended to permit for a regulatory and enforcement unit saddled with implementing no matter schedule of scale of cost for authorized practitioners will probably be integrated into the Act and mandating a Invoice of Cost be despatched in strict compliance with the Schedule of Charges annexed to the LPA. It’s not sufficient to merely stipulate the powers of the LPRC as was accomplished in see Part 15(3) of the LPA, intentional efforts have to be made at corresponding punitive measures for contravention of the Scale of Cost.

The RPC can additional outline what’s “affordable and commensurate”[v] and mandate that every one companies publish value and repair info on their web sites for sure authorized companies.
