He was banned for three years after pleading guilty to charges brought against him.

One of the charges, on the basis of which he suffered a one-year ban, was out of a complaint brought by Mr. Agyare accusing the lawyer of attempting to swindle him.

The GLC also said that he had flouted the Professional Conduct and Etiquette rules by advertising his legal firm’s name and address on social media platform, Facebook.
