No other legal treatment can be given to such type of transactions. being an auditor you must consider the concept of materiality. If these amount arre so material that they can change the view of user after seeing the financial statements then they should not be part of Misc exps, otherwise its ok to show them as Misc Exp

you can claim all the above expenses as 'Legal Fees & Expenses' account, except under the table expenses.
Under the table expenses can be shown as Withdrawal of Capital (Proprietor or Partners) in case of so necessity.
