Bobroff & Partners to draw up a bill of costs for De la Guerre and refund her the difference between this bill and what she was charged. Subsequent attempts by the Bobroffs to appeal to the Supreme Court of Appeal and the Constitutional Court failed. • The Pretoria High Court orders the Law Society to carry out an urgent inspection of Bobroff & Partners’ accounts and to report back within 30 days. • The Law Society’s investigation finds evidence that the Bobroffs failed to keep proper accounting records, overcharged their clients, did not properly put clients’ fees through a business account, employed various tactics to reduce their income tax and VAT liabilities unlawfully, and delayed payments to clients. It also found that Darren Bobroff had forged a business cheque in favour of client in order to pay it into his own bank account. The Law Society then launched its own counter application to Matthew Graham’s case to have the Bobroffs struck from the roll of attorneys, first giving the Bobroffs the opportunity to respond to the case against them. • The Pretoria High Court orders the Bobroffs’ suspension from the roll of attorneys pending the Law Society’s application to have them struck from the roll and orders the sale of the Bobroffs’ practice to be stopped. • Ronald and Darren Bobroff and Darren’s wife, Lisa, flee to Australia after being informed by the Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation that they should present themselves for arrest on charges of fraud and money laundering and possible theft of money that should have been held in trust.
