I was amused to read Paul Marsh's letter in defence of dinosaurs (The Lawyer, 11 February). I am very surprised that Mr Marsh does not appear to be aware that solicitors in Scotland have successfully been selling property for hundreds of years.
He also makes reference to two property cases in Surrey where claims have been made on the Compensation Fund.
A solicitor of his experience should know better than to seek to draw conclusions from cases such as these.
It would be just as illogical to use similar figures for the purpose of casting aspersions on any other solicitors.
For example, think of how many conveyancing solicitors have gone bankrupt involving claims against the Compensation Fund.
Mr Marsh should understand that dinosaurs became extinct because they were unable to cope with change.
