Ex-Hogan Lovells partner jailed for three years over £1.27m fraud
How is Grierson any better than the young woman who decided to go and loot from Currys (her employers) in her uniform during the riots? Both employees stole from their respective employers whilst in work garb. At least the ex-Currys employee had the decency to do her thieving under cover of darkness.
The only difference is that Grierson thought that the normal rules regarding stealing from his employers were suspended for four years rather than four nights.
In her defence, the young woman was not standing in judgement of her colleagues on disciplinary committees whilst on the rob, chowing down in the partner dining room (until one enlightened soul sussed that the hand of Grierson that betrayeth him was with him at the table) and billing 3,500 hours divvying-up Madoff's estate.
Like so many in the City, Grierson had a looter mentality - so why shouldn't the punishment fit the crime?
