Setup of a legal firm by a nominee after the death of an adv

An uncle of mine expired few days back due to covid. He was a well known advocate. He and his staff used to handle cases related to income tax, GST, accounts, etc.

He is survived by his wife and his son who are trying to retain the work which he used to do, none of whom is advocate. 

They are offered assistance by few of his fellow advocates but it creates a risk of his business being overtaken by them.

Is there any legal way through which his family can run his business as well as safeguard their rights?

1.  IT is absolutely not necessary for Partners /Directors to be Advocates or Lawyers to conduct business of a Law Firm.  There are scores of such Law Firms, even in India.  Google Search the same for your requirements.

2. However you will need to engage ONLY registered Advocates to handle the legal matters and appearances in Court /Authorities.  Proper Time-Limit Indemnity Bond may be taken from such Advocates restraining them against leaking or breaking clients.

Yes, it can be continued in the name of deceased lawyer.

However, only lawyers should manage court proceedings.
