Court Nullifies Court Proceedings Conducted by an Unqualified Person

Sammy Mwiria vs Luca Nyaga Njerera

Succession Cause 627 of 2013

High Court at Embu

F Muchemi, J

December 14, 2017

Reported by Ian Kiptoo

 

Advocate-validity of proceedings conducted by an unqualified person-where documents where prepared by an advocate-whether a court could nullify proceedings conducted by an unqualified person despite the documents being prepared and drawn by a qualified advocate-Advocates Act, section 31 and 34.

Advocate-advocate/client relationship-liability of negligent acts/omissions by an advocate- whether a client could seek damages in respect of negligent acts or omissions committed by a law firm-Advocate Act, section 39

 

Brief facts

The Applicant approached the Court through a notice of motion that the Court strike out the proceedings in the matter from the date of December 1, 2014 to December 6, 2016 conducted by Mr. Vincent Afande, a person not qualified to act as an advocate. It also sought orders that all rulings/orders and/or judgments issued in favour of the Objector/Respondent between the December 1, 2014 and December 6, 2016 be set aside and declared a nullity.

On the other hand, the Respondent stated that the said Vincent Afande never prepared any pleading and neither did he prosecute the matter. All the pleadings were drawn and filed by Guserwa & Company advocates. He was never involved in any interparte hearing of any applications in court save for mentions and delivery of a ruling on July 27, 2017. For that reason, the Respondent pleaded with the Court not to allow the Application.

 

Issues

  1. Whether a court could nullify proceedings conducted by an unqualified person despite the documents being prepared and drawn by a qualified advocate.
  2. Whether a client could seek damages in respect of negligent acts or omissions committed by a law firm.

 

 

Relevant Provisions of the Law

Advocates Act; Section 31

(1) Subject to section 83, no unqualified person shall act as an advocate, or as such cause any summons or other process to issue, or institute, carry on or defend any suit or other proceedings in the name of any other person in any court of civil or criminal jurisdiction.

 (2)  Any person who contravenes subsection (1) shall—

 (a)  be deemed to be in contempt of the court in  which he so acts or in which the suit or matter in relation to which he so acts is brought or taken, and may be punished accordingly; and

 (b) be incapable of maintaining any suit for any costs in respect of anything done by him in the course of so acting; and

 (c)  in addition be guilty of an offence.

 

Held

  1. The part played by Mr. Afande in the cause and in particular the hearing of the Application dated February 27, 2015 could not be underestimated. It was as a result of the actions by Mr. Afande that the Application was set for hearing, directions taken and orders sought granted. 
  2. The firm of J.A. Guserwa & Co. prepared and filed the pleadings and it remained the advocates for the Objectors/Respondents at all material times. Therefore, the Application dated February 27, 2015 was filed by the said firm which was competent and qualified under the Advocates Act.
  3. Section 31 of the Advocates Act prohibited an unqualified person from acting as an advocate. Mr. Afande was an unqualified person who took upon himself to conduct legal business knowing that his actions were contrary to the law and amounted to a criminal offence. The firm of J.A. Guserwa & Co. failed to take due diligence to establish the legal qualifications of Mr. Afande before instructing him to hold their brief. It was important to note that Mr. Afande held brief from the said firm about ten times. That was the height of negligence on the part of the firm that would not be condoned.
  4. Under the law, a client was entitled to claim damages against a law firm for any loss suffered as a result of the illegalities caused by the act or omission of a law firm. That kind of negligence might have led to prosecution of the firm concerned with a criminal offence under section 39 of the Advocates Act which forbade such conduct.
  5. Section 34 of the Advocates Act forbade an unqualified person from directly or indirectly taking instructions from or drawing or preparing any documents or instruments relating to the work of an advocate. Any person wishing to practice law had to meet the mandatory qualifications.
  6. The actions of Mr. Afande were a breach of statutes and a commission of a crime which risked suffering by innocent litigants. By virtue of the oath of office, an advocate in private practice had to promote the integrity and discipline in the legal profession. Therefore, negligence of the law firm was inexcusable.
  7. The proceedings for the period between December 1, 2014 to December 6, 2014 were conducted by a person not qualified to act as an advocate and were therefore null and void. 

 

Application allowed

 

Orders

  1. The Application dated February 27, 2015 or any pleadings filed by the firm of J.A. Guserwa & Co. were declared in order and were properly on record.
  2. The costs of the Application would be paid by the firm of J.A. Guserwa & Co. advocates for reasons given in the ruling.
