If you have any questions about Legal Adhikari, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. In this agreement, we refer to the Legal Adhikari service as “the service,” to you as “the user,” and to our agreement as “the agreement.” If you wish to use our “Common Needs” feature, please be aware that you must be 18 years of age or older and fully capable of understanding and agreeing to the terms, conditions, and obligations involved.

II. LEGALADHIKARI ONLY PROVIDES A MEDIUM FOR INTERACTION
(a) Disclaimer of lawyer-client relationship
(b) Legal Adhikari does not promote any User.
Legal Adhikari aims to assist individuals in finding lawyers that best meet their needs. It is not meant to be a source of advertising or solicitation and the information on the website should not be considered legal advice. Legal Adhikari may recommend subscribing lawyers if they fit a user’s criteria, but not otherwise. Using Legal Adhikari does not establish a lawyer-client relationship. Users should not base any actions or decisions solely on the information found on the website. We encourage users to thoroughly review the profiles of lawyers and make their own informed choices.
c) Specifically, Legal Adhikari does not provide any avenue for solicitation
Legal Adhikari keeps client information private and hidden from lawyers until the client initiates direct or online communication. As a result, lawyers are not able to view private information about potential clients.
(d) Legal Adhikari does not provide Legal Advice
The ‘Common Needs’ feature on Legal Adhikari only generates basic documents using information provided by users. The information in the ‘FAQs’ section is also not considered legal advice and only covers commonly asked questions about document such as Will making, Lease Agreement drafting, Cheque Dishonour notices, Money recovery notices, Power of Attorney to collect rent, and others that may be added in the future. Users are encouraged to seek specialized guidance from lawyers if they need help with these documents.
(e) 'Common Needs'- Resale of Forms Prohibited

You acknowledge and agree that you have no right to modify, edit, copy, reproduce, create derivative works of, reverse engineer, alter, enhance or in any way exploit any of the forms in any manner, except for modifications in filling out the forms for your authorized use.
By ordering a document from Legal Adhikari, you agree that the document can only be used by you for your personal or business use or used by you in connection with your client and may not be sold or redistributed without the express written consent of Legal Adhikari.
