Lawrence Graham fraudster to face the music

Police are one step further to bringing disgraced former Lawrence Graham partner Michael Fielding back to the UK. The Lawyer understands that the Metropolitan Police, which has been investigating the matter, has now handed over documents to the Crown Prosecution Service, meaning that Fielding’s extradition is imminent. No charge, however, has been made. In 2001, after running up millions of pounds of debt with the Royal Bank of Scotland, Fielding allegedly took £2m out of client London & Regional Properties’ account and left the country. He is currently still in the US. The matter is also under investigation by the Office for the Supervision of Solicitors.
