“It Is Professional Misconduct For Lawyer To Under Charge Client.

A lawyer is entitled to adequate payment for his services. Legal Practice is the business of legal Practitioners. Although a lawyer’s fee can be reduced or be no fee at all on grounds of special relationship or poorness of client, it unprofessional for a lawyer to under charge clients. Undercharging (Undercutting) is a professional misconduct.

My authorities are Rules 48 (1) and 52 of Rules of Professional Conduct For Legal Practitioners, 2007.
