Updated effective from 1st July, 2021
ezyLegal is an internet portal that facilitates online delivery of legal consultation, documentation, and registration service by a legal professional to potential users. ezyLegal is in no way, directly, or indirectly responsible for the legal assistance provided by the external lawyers, legal experts, agents, consultants etc. We are a technology platform enabling service providers to provide online legal services to clients through our platform. ezyLegal has no control over the services provided by the legal experts, agents, or consultants registered on it’s platform.
- ezyLegal is not an agent of lawyers, agents, consultants and not a law firm and therefore it does not offer the services performed by a lawyer, agents, consultants etc. ezyLegal will not be responsible in cases of any issue/discrepancy with the services provided by the independent lawyer, agent, consultant. ezyLegal shall not be liable for any damage or costs of any type arising out of or in any way connected with your use of such online services.
- ezyLegal strives to keep the information published on the Site accurate, current and up-to-date. However, because the law changes quickly, ezyLegal does not guarantee that all of the information published on the Site or Applications is correct, complete or up to date. Furthermore, the legal information contained on the Site and Applications is not legal advice. Therefore, nothing on our website or material sent to you in our communication is to be construed as legal advice.
- ezyLegal does not involve itself in the consultation or discussions during the execution of services including consultation, drafting of agreements, registration of documents etc. between the lawyers/consultants/agents and the Users. Therefore, ezyLegal cannot ensure the correctness or the completeness of the advise, agreement or the integrity of either party.
- ezyLegal offers limited services through its Site; so if the User’s particular problem is too complicated to be addressed by our standard limited use service offerings, the User should consult a licensed lawyer.
- This Site and Applications are not intended to create any attorney-client relationship, and the User’s use of ezyLegal does not and will not create any attorney-client relationship between the User and ezyLegal. Communication exchanged between the User and the legal expert through the ezyLegal Site will therefore not be protected as privileged communications under the attorney-client privilege.
INTERACTION WITH LEGAL EXPERTS
Legal Experts registered on ezyLegal’s websites are neither employees nor agents of ezyLegal. Legal Experts are professionals who are independent practitioners and have agreed to provide online answers, limited consultations, and legal documentation services to users of the ezyLegal Site. Also, ezyLegal is not a marketing agent of professional legal experts. It only facilitates the communication between legal experts and users. Online service taken by the User or any electronic communication exchanged with the User will not create a lawyer-client relationship between the user and ezyLegal.
In all cases, ezyLegal will not influence or interfere in any way with any lawyer’s independent professional judgment. External legal experts reserve the right to refuse to offer legal services to the User at their discretion. The user understands that the documentation requested by the User shall be executed by the legal experts/lawyers based on the discussion between the lawyer and the User. ezyLegal has no authority and does not guarantee the correctness of the contents of the final/drafted document.
ezyLegal shall have no responsibility or liability of any kind for any professional services provided by any external lawyer through the ezyLegal Site, and any use or reliance on such professional services is completely and solely at the User’s own risk.
The User understands that the Registration of documents solely depends on the Registrar/Authority as per applicable laws and the information provided by the User. Further, the Registrar/Authority may raise objections/requests for submission of additional information/documents, which shall be provided by the User at his/her own costs. Since it is a statutory procedure, we cannot anticipate the results or outcome of the User’s particular procedure. For instance, the Registrar/Authority may object to registration for legal reasons; or a backlog in Registration may lead to a delay in the process.
The scope of services of ezyLegal shall be limited to the facilitation of Registration by assigning a lawyer/consultant/agent, who shall assist the User in the registration process.
