A SENIOR partner at a Bradford firm of solicitors and his brother formed a fictitious agency to claim almost £600,000 in interpreter’s legal fees, a jury has heard.
Mohammed Ayub, 55, his brother Mohammed Riaz, 48, and Chambers Solicitors employee Neil Frew, 48, are on trial at Sheffield Crown Court on a charge of conspiracy to defraud.
It is alleged that between September 2010 and October 2014 they conspired together to create a “sham company” – known as Legal Support Services (LSS) – to claim the money in expenses from the Legal Aid Agency (LAA), a government body that administers the legal aid system.


All three defendants deny the charge.
Prosecutor Simon Kealey told the court that Ayub, of Aireville Drive, Shipley, was principal solicitor, and Frew, of Hoyle Court Drive, Baildon, immigration manager and a partner at the firm, which received a contract from the LAA for immigration work in October 2010.
Disbursements, such as payment for interpreters, were not included in the fixed fees in the contract, and claimed as out-of-pocket expenses.
