The UK's richest solicitor last week appeared before a Merseyside magistrate charged with actual bodily harm of a policeman.
Andrew Nulty, senior partner of Warrington-based Avalon Solicitors, who made £13m last year, appeared before St Helens Magistrates' Court last Tuesday (29 August) charged with assaulting a police officer.
The court confirmed that Nulty was charged alongside his brother Martin. The pair were released on unconditional bail pending a plea hearing at St Helens on 12 October.
Last month (21 August) The Lawyer revealed that Nulty's firm Avalon had made a profit of £15.5m in the last financial year. Senior partner Nulty took home some £13m, while managing partner Anthony Chorlton made £2.5m.
However, the firm is also under investigation by the Law Society for its role in the miners' compensation scheme.
Nulty is due to appear before a disciplinary tribunal accused of several breaches of solicitors' practice and accounting rules.
