Practicing Advocate can not involve in business activity / trading directly or indirectly.collect the proofs and make  complaint to concerned State  Bar council.

As per the Advocate Act, an advocate can not involve himself in any business activity directly or indirectly. So in case you have the relevant evidence with you, you can file a complaint for the cancellation of licence of the advocate with the concerned state bar council.
