Signing of Court Processes By A Law Firm: A Review Of The Recent Case Of Heritage Bank v. Bentworth |Oliver Omoredia

Some legal practitioners have opined that the decision Supreme Court in SC/175/2005-Heritage Bank Ltd v. Bentworth Finance (Nigeria) Limited delivered on the 23rd of February 2018 is clear deviation and implicit overruling of its earlier position on the implication of a court process signed by a law firm. Most of the commentators have argued that the position of the law as established through a long line of cases interpreting section 2 and Section 24 of the Legal Practitioners Act, is that a court process signed other than by a legal practitioner whose name appears on the Roll of legal practitioners registered with the Supreme Court, is a nullity.
