Law firm warned against taking up cases

The law firm of Gordon & Chaudhry has been warned against making court appearances or taking fresh instructions from clients.
The firm’s offices in Suva and Sigatoka were shut down yesterday following orders from Chief Registrars Office.
Acting Chief Registrar, Mohammad Saneem obtained orders from the Independent Legal Services Commission restraining Ronald Gordon and Rajendra Chaudhry from operating their law firm.
An irate Chaudhry told FBC News – he will fight this move.
The heavy handedness of the Chief Registrar is something that leaves much to be desired, barging into the office with at least eight staff – four police officers – I’m not a criminal. They could have done the same with a lot more civility.
Acting chief registrar Saneem says since Chaudhry and his partner don’t have a valid Practicing Certificate, the law firm can’t be allowed to operate until further notice.
