We have incorporated the standards of the International Code of Ethics adopted by the International Bar Association to deliver outstanding legal services to the client’s satisfaction.

01

Navicus lawyers shall at all times maintain the honour and dignity of their profession. They shall, in practice as well as in private life, abstain from any behaviour which may tend to discredit the profession of which they are members.

02

Navicus lawyers shall preserve independence in the discharge of their professional duty. Lawyers practising on their own account or in a partnership where permissible, shall not engage in any other business or occupation if by doing so they may cease to be independent.

03

Navicus lawyers shall treat their professional colleagues with the utmost courtesy and fairness. Whenever Navicus lawyers undertake to render assistance to a foreign colleague it is always kept in mind that the foreign colleague depends on them to a much larger extent than in the case of another lawyer of the same country. Therefore our responsibility is much greater, both when giving advice and when handling a case. For this reason “Lex Navicus Concordia” lawyers accept a case, provided that they can be handled promptly and with due competence, without undue interference by the pressure of other work.

04

Except where the law or custom otherwise requires, any oral or written communication between “Lex Navicus Concordia” lawyers shall in principle be accorded a confidential character as far as the Court is concerned, unless specific promises or acknowledgements are made therein on behalf of a client.

05

Navicus lawyers shall always maintain due respect towards the Court. Lawyers shall without fear defend the interests of their clients and without regard to any unpleasant consequences to themselves or to any other person. Lawyers shall never knowingly give to the Court incorrect information or advice which is to their knowledge contrary to the law.

06

It shall be considered improper for Navicus lawyers to communicate about a particular case directly with any person whom they know to be represented in that case by another lawyer without the latter’s consent.

07

Navicus lawyers consent to handle a case provided that (a) the client gives direct instructions, or, (b) the case is assigned by a competent body or forwarded by another lawyer, or (c) instructions are given in any other manner permissible under the relevant local rules or regulations.

08

Navicus lawyers shall at all times give clients a candid opinion on any case. They shall render assistance with scrupulous care and diligence. This applies also if they are assigned as counsel for an indigent person. “Lex Navicus Concordia” Lawyers shall at any time be free to refuse to handle a case unless it is assigned by a competent body. 

09

Navicus lawyers should only withdraw from a case during its course for a good cause, and if possible in such a manner that the client’s interests are not adversely affected. The loyal defence of a client’s case may never cause advocates to be other than perfectly candid, subject to any right or privilege to the contrary which clients choose them to exercise, or knowingly to go against the law.

10

Navicus lawyers shall when in the client’s interest, endeavour to reach a solution by settlement out of court rather than start legal proceedings. Navicus lawyers should never stir up litigation.

11

Navicus lawyers should not acquire a financial interest in the subject matter of a case which they are conducting. Neither should they, directly or indirectly, acquire property about which litigation is pending before the Court in which they practice.

12

Navicus lawyers should never represent conflicting interests in litigation. In non-litigation matters, lawyers should do so only after having disclosed all conflicts or possible conflicts of interest to all parties concerned and only with their consent.

13

Navicus lawyers should never disclose unless lawfully ordered to do so by the Court or as required by Statute, what has been communicated to them in their capacity as lawyers even after they have ceased to be the client’s counsel. This duty extends to their partners, to junior lawyers assisting them and to their employees.

14

In pecuniary matters, Navicus lawyers shall be most punctual and diligent. They should never mingle funds of others with their own and they should at all times be able to refund the money they hold for others. They shall not retain the money they receive for their clients for longer than is absolutely necessary.

15

Navicus lawyers may require that a deposit is made to cover their expenses and fees, but the deposit should be in accordance with the estimated amount of their charges and the probable expenses and labour required.

16

Navicus lawyers shall never forget that they should put first not their right to compensation for their services, but the interests of their clients and the exigencies of the administration of justice. The Lawyer’s right to ask for a deposit or to demand payment of out-of-pocket expenses and commitments, failing payment of which they may withdraw from the case or refuse to handle it, should never be exercised at a moment at which the client may be unable to find other assistance in time to prevent irreparable damage being done.

17

Whenever Navicus lawyers engage a foreign colleague to advise on a case or to cooperate in handling it, are responsible for the payment of the latter’s charges except where there has been an express agreement to the contrary. When lawyers direct a client to a foreign colleague they are not responsible for the payment of the latter’s charges.
