Two immigration lawyers with seperate offices just a door apart on the second floor of a strip mall in northeast Calgary have had their disagreements. Perhaps that is not so unusual for two direct competitors but remarkably the rivalry ended up in a fist fight in the parking lot and the appearance of at least one of the lawyers before a Law Society of Alberta disciplinary hearing.
Calgary police investigated the incident but no charges were laid.
The two brawling barristers are Surinder Randhawa and Dalwinder Hayer. Randhawa has been a practising lawyer in Alberta since 1989 and Hayer since 1994. They have known each other for 27 years and have occasionally done business. They both serve primarily the Indo-Canadian community and focus on immigration and real estate.
