Finers partner slams SRA's new rules on defending solicitors
Thanks Andrew. As for ‘understandable’…I was hoping to keep going a bit longer! Seriously, though, it does demonstrate that clients, even it seems the SRA, are sensitive to conflicts (including confidentiality issues here) in a way lawyers do not always perceive. There is an interesting quote in the biography of Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacs noting Jobs' dismay that Google ended up competing with Apple after Google's CEO had been on Apple's board. The author reports how Jobs felt 'betrayed' and 'ripped off'. But I don't condone the imposition of a prosecution only rule on solicitors. I do not believe it assists either the administration of justice or the perception of justice being fairly administered.
