SRA warning about the intervention into Chambers Solicitors, Bradford – Freezing Injunction
21 December 2016
The SRA has obtained a Freezing Injunction from the High Court as a result of concerns that money due to Chambers Solicitors, formerly of 37 Grattan Road, Bradford, West Yorkshire BD1 2LU, is being diverted to other law firms who may not be entitled to the money. This follows the SRA announcement, on 7 December, that it had closed the practice down through an intervention.
If any law firm, insurer or other party was dealing with Chambers, and are now asked to deal with a new law firm and to send money to that law firm in relation to costs for work done by Chambers Solicitors, they should check the position further with the SRA’s Intervention Agent. This is:
John Owen of Gordons LLP
8 Duke Street
Bradford BD1 3QX
Tel 01274 703 910
DX 11716 Bradford
The Freezing Injunction freezes all monies held by, on behalf of, or to the order of Mohammed Ayub or his practice as Chambers Solicitors, in connection with his practice, including, but not limited to, any sums of money paid by third parties in respect of legal services carried out by Mohammed Ayub or his practice.
