*The Law Society of England & Wales v Shah

Solicitor – Disciplinary proceedings. The claimant Law Society applied for an injunction making permanent prohibitions against the defendant, S, to prevent him holding himself out as a solicitor or becoming involved with legal work. The Chancery Division held that while, on the evidence, the Law Society could not invoke the court's supervisory jurisdiction over S to obtain the relief that it sought, the relief sought by the Law Society would be granted in the exercise of the court's power under s 41(4)(c) of the Legal Services Act 2007.
