The name “FNE”  is derived from the initials of our founder Francis Nnamdi Elekwachi, who established  the firm on 24 September 2004.


We are a general practice law firm offering legal services in all the general areas of Civil Law; Criminal Law; Family Law; Wills & Estate; General Law; Commercial & Business Law; Migration Law; Litigation and Legal Information Products. Our motto is: Service begets Success!


We act mostly for individuals and small businesses. We do legal aid work. We also undertake work on flexible payment terms and conditions for clients who do not qualify for Legal Aid Funding either because their matter is not eligible for funding or they earn some low income or have some assets that put them above the Legal Aid  means test threshold.


We have implemented and continue to implement delivery of legal services products that assist and support self-represented litigants to gain access to justice and equity.  We also run a digitised paperless practice, thus helping to preserve the environment, reduce global warming and at the same time, reduce turnaround times in many areas of service delivery.


If you have access to Skype, WhatsApp, Facebook, Hangouts and similar video conferencing platforms, we do accept appointments and interview/advice by video conferencing at your convenience.


We continue to investigate and implement new methods of legal service delivery to as many citizens as possible who otherwise would not afford access to justice.
