  • That's £5k per week over a 4 year period. Apparently all on PD as no clients were affected. How on earth was this not picked up earlier????!

  • What was Lovells PEP last year? Around £600k was it?
    Frankly, who can blame the guy? Let's start a whip round now. I've got 38p and a Eurolottery ticket in m pocket which I'm prepared to donate. Anyone with me?

  • This is a very strange situation. He clearly didn't need the money if he's going to be able to pay it back within two weeks. Have the police been called? This is, after all, theft.

  • Well, that's one way to boost your PEP!
    (Maybe he felt the firm wasn't paying him what he they owed him and tried to claim the difference on expenses - strangely similar to the MPs' expenses scandal.)

  • Well I worked with him for years and he was always polite and friendly and I feel desperately sorry for him. I can't imagine it was just greed - something else must have driven him to this

  • Congrats to Lovells for facing up to this and dealing with it. Certain other firms (to name no names) turned a blind eye to their "robber barons" doing this for years.
