About VM Lawyers Fiji

The establishment of VM lawyers has its origin over 35 years ago. the legal practice was initially established by Vijay Maharaj under the name and style of Maharaj & Associates in 1982.

Before the establishment of the practice, Maharaj worked as a Crown Counsel at the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions for approximately two years. Following his resignation from the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions and after a short stint as a solicitor with the renowned law firm of Vijaya Parmanadam & Associates he eventually opened his own practice.

The law practice had a rapid expansion in terms of number of clientele over the years. The firm initially concentrated in the area of criminal practice but soon branched out into other areas of law because of public demand.

In 1993 the firm was renamed Maharaj Chandra & Associates, with the addition of Mr. Suresh Chandra into the firm. Mr. Chandra was a former Registrar of titles in Fiji and a senior legal officer at the office of the Attorney General. He came with considerable experience in civil matters including corporate and land matters.

About 14 years ago Mr. Suresh Chandra became the sole proprietor with the trading name of MC Lawyers.

In August 2020 Vijay Maharaj commenced his own practice once again but on this occasion under the name of Vijay Maharaj Lawyers.

The firm undertakes general practice in the area of:
