Explosive allegations surface in Halliwells court case
Explosive indeed. The lid has finally been blown off.
Now that allegations of this nature have been aired in open court the likelihood of an SRA investigation must be very high.
What the scope of any investigation would be is a very interesting question given the serious allegations that have been made in relation to Halliwells, including in the comments section of this website. It would be a fascinating but difficult task I suspect!
Interesting questions too for Addleshaws' compliance people - presumably any information they hold on these allegations will be passed to the SRA, notwithstanding that it might not be in the interests of the liquidators to do so.... and what about the mediation, is that really an appropriate forum for hearing a case when in related proceedings the court has heard very serious allegations about the conduct of solicitors, who are officers of the court...? Surely these issues should be dealt with in open court, with the SRA in attendance as an interested party?
Lots to chew on.
Would be great if the Lawyer could now follow up its interview with Ian Austin....
