Chhokar & Co was founded by Santokh Chhokar in 1994. in partnership with Mr G H Raisinghaney, who has since retired from the Firm.
The Firm started from modest two room offices located on part of the Second Floor of the building in which the Firm is still located.
By the Grace of the Almighty and the efforts and determination of Santokh Chhokar and his team of lawyers and support staff, the Firm’s work load increased rapidly.
As a result the Firm steadily grew in size until, in 1998, it occupied the whole of the Second Floor of the building.
When, in 2002, the opportunity arose for the Firm to re-locate onto the First Floor of the building, Santokh Chhokar decided that this would not only provide easier accessibility for the Firm’s clients, but also allow the Firm to have custom built offices, built around the Firm’s needs and mode of working. In consequence, the Second Floor was designed to include state of the art climate control, CCTV system, duct cabling etc. The Firm also installed a brand new Dell Computers network system.
Leading edge technology has always been a particular strength of the Firm, and in 2005 Chhokar & Co became one of the very first law firms to acquire the Osprey.TM Practice Management System. This is an entirely web-based application which, amongst other features, enables Chhokar & Co lawyers operate a ‘virtual office’ and to access (and work with) the Firm’s entire records from anywhere in the world.
