A lawyer has crowdfunded more than $10,000 overnight to challenge a move to suspend him from practicing law after the lawyers’ professional association filed a complaint about his crowdfunding anti-vaccine legal challenges.

The Council of the Law Society New South Wales has moved to suspend the practising certificate of G&B Lawyers partner Nathan Buckley until the end of June 2022, according to a part of a letter published to the firm’s social media accounts. The Law Society of New South Wales declined to comment on individual proceedings.
