Amrapali’s lawyers given flats & penthouses
In yet another startling revelation, the embattled Amrapali Group gave away flats and penthouses as fees to lawyers representing it at various judicial forums, forensic auditors informed the Supreme Court on Thursday. Amrapali lawyers accepting fees from their clients in ‘kind’ is in violation of law, they said.
The bench said it is prohibited under the Advocates Act and no lawyers can accept the fees in kind.
Forensic auditors Pawan Agrawal and Ravi Bhatia, without taking any names, told the bench that some lawyers appearing for Amrapali Group in the top court in contravention of the Advocates Act, have taken flats and penthouses from their client.
