- Auto-Renewals and Paid Accounts
Paralex has partnered with an external payment platform to accept and handle all payments for and on its behalf. This third-party payment platform on behalf of Paralex may automatically charge you at the end of your subscription period to auto-renew your subscription. This automatic charge at the end of your subscription will occur unless you notify us that you want to cancel your subscription to our services before the renewal date. To ensure uninterrupted service and to enable you conveniently purchase additional products and services on Paralex, our third-party payment platform will store your payment method on their system if you wish them to. However, if you do not wish for your payment details to be stored with them, you have to indicate so on our platform.
Please note that it is your responsibility to maintain current billing information on file with Paralex and on our third-party payment platform.
Also note that your subscription fee to Paralex is different from the payment you shall make on the platform for services that you choose. For example, if you wish to register a Business name, you will have to make a payment for this service which is different from the payment you made for subscription to our services.
It is your duty to notify us if you wish to cancel or not renew your subscription, and you understand that your payment details may be stored on your behalf by the third-party payment platform handling all payments made to Paralex.
- Refund Policy
We want you to be 100% satisfied with our services. If you are less than satisfied or believe there has been an error in billing, please contact our Customer Service Department by email at email@example.com or by telephone at 08012345678 Immediately so that we can resolve the issue.
We do not offer refunds on payments we have collected for incorporation related services (including without limitation registered agent services) or to other third parties with a role in processing your order. We also cannot refund any money paid by you directly to third parties, such as payments made by you for the account of other entities or directly to participating legal practitioners on the platform.
We place customer satisfaction as our highest priority and we are committed to resolving any issue you have. However, we do not give refunds for services that you have already used or rendered by third parties that were only facilitated.
- Paralex is not a Law Firm and does not provide Legal Advice
Paralex provides a platform access to legal information, other entities associated with Paralex, for self-service and access to legal practitioners to assist you in any work that requires the attention and assistance of a legal practitioner. All information provided by Paralex on this Site is provided to the public as a source of general information on various issues. In legal matters (“Legal Information”), no publication whether written or in electronic form can take the place of professional advice given with full knowledge of the specific circumstances of each case and proficiency in the laws of the relevant state in our jurisdiction or any other jurisdiction you wish to seek legal advice from.
If you need legal advice for a specific problem, you should consult with a licensed legal practitioner. Although you have access to qualified legal practitioners registered with Paralex who may proffer services in respect of diverse issues you may have, you are not obligated to consult them for legal advice.
Your use of the services does not create a lawyer-client relationship between you and any Paralex employee or representative.
Paralex does not provide legal advice; only licensed legal practitioners can do that. We can connect you with independent lawyers and law firms on our platform, but we are not responsible for the advice they give.
- Interactions with Legal Practitioner on Paralex
When you use our services, you will have the opportunity to initiate contact with the legal practitioners accessible on our platform. These legal practitioners are neither employees nor agents of Paralex. They are third-party independent contractors who carry out their practice separate from Paralex. Communicating with legal practitioners on our platform is NOT mandatory. However, if you choose to communicate with them through Paralex, please not the following below:
PARALEX SHALL HAVE NO RESPONSIBILITY OR LIABILITY OF ANY KIND FOR ANY PROFESSIONAL SERVICES RENDERED BY ANY LEGAL PRACTITONER YOU ENCOUNTER ON OR THROUGH OUR PLATFORM, AND ANY USE OR RELIANCE ON SUCH PROFESSIONAL SERVICES IS SOLELY AT YOUR OWN RISK.
- When you contact a legal practitioner on our platform and they provide you with legal assistance, review of documents, consultation, answers to legal questions etc. Please note that such interaction is between you and the legal practitioner and any lawyer-client relationship that arises from your interactions with them is strictly between you and the legal practitioner and expressly EXCLUDES Paralex.
- When you contact a legal practitioner through Paralex, he/she may ask you for some information regarding you and your legal affairs in order to offer you the best legal assistance they can. By using our services, you consent to sharing such information with Paralex. Paralex will have access to any communications submitted through our platform for quality assurance purposes.
- When you contact a legal practitioner through Paralex, you control the duration and depth of the interaction. Any lawyer-client relationship formed during the course of the interaction may at your decision, either end when the interaction ends or continue if you wish to continue engaging the services of the legal practitioner.
- Any lawyer-client relationship you create with a legal practitioner on our platform that goes beyond your use of our services, will be on the terms agreed between you and the legal practitioner. Those terms do NOT involve Paralex.

However, legal practitioners with high ratings from previous dealings with Paralex users will have their high ratings by their name and may come up first when a user searches for a legal practitioner to deliver a service or services to them. Paralex makes no representations to the qualifications or competency of any legal practitioner or as to the accuracy or completeness of their work.
The legal practitioners you find on our platform are independent contractors, not Paralex employees, so they are free to set their own terms and fees. Paralex is not responsible for the services or advice they give.
- Legal Practitioners Profiles on our Platform:
Although Paralex signs an agreement with the legal practitioners on our platform attesting to the fact that they are licensed to practice in Nigeria, as a user, it is your duty to ensure that the legal practitioner you engage has been called to the Nigerian Bar and is licensed to practice in Nigeria. The same applies to law firms and any lawyer that you engage from any law firm to render legal services to you or a third-party.
We provide a directory of legal practitioners in Nigeria as a service to the public and not as an endorsement to these legal Practitioners. It is up to you to research any legal practitioner you are thinking of hiring.

However, if Paralex is not able to resolve a dispute with you after attempting to do so informally, then as a condition to use our services, we mutually agree to resolve such dispute through Mediation at the Lagos State Multidoor Court House and under the laws of the Lagos State Multi-door Courthouse unless parties agree to any alternative forum whenever a dispute arises. If settlement is not reached within 3 months of a written demand for mediation by either party, any unresolved controversy or claim shall be settled by arbitration administered by the Lagos State Multi-door Court House in accordance with its Laws.

Notwithstanding our agreement to arbitrate our disputes as provided above, the following exceptions will apply to the resolution of disputes between us:
