  • As a former colleague and friend of Kevin, I for one, cannot accept that Kevin is guilty. The Kevin Steele I know doesn't have a dishonest bone in his body; contrary to what the SFO say, this is no victory for honesty - it is my very sincere hope that truth and justice will ultimately prevail.

  • So if he is innocent why are the two co-defendants pleading guilty and why aren't his former employers defending him to the hilt?

  • He was one of the best, good old Kev he always got a round in. He was just doing his best for a client and now he's doing porridge.
    It's not right

  • I also know Kevin and have done for many years and have always found him to be a honourable and decent man. I cannot believe that he would entertain serious fraud and it is my hope that he appeals this conviction and is found not guilty. Chin up Kevin

  • Kev is a good bloke. I worked with him in the 90's and its hard to believe the mess he is in.

    I lift my pint to him and wish him well, he has a lot of supporters.

    cheers matey

  • Kevin's case sums up Mishcon de Reya when I worked there in the 1990s: Greed, aggressiveness, rudeness and arrogance

  • Nice bloke has nothing to do with it. He has been convicted and this is ging to cost us when he is eventually struck off.

  • kev was the House MD of the legal world and he is a great bloke. i think he was taken in and made a grave misjudgement i hope he gets through this. he didnt need money and was not money motivated i think he was just trying to impress a client and so that he could still show he was a big player at mishcon. he should have semi retired to a his own Surrey practice years ago. what a shame. i hope your ok big man.

  • I too have known Kevin for years, he has never in my opinion been motivated by money, he has always been a loyal and trusting man that believes in his clients and would never have knowingly done such a thing. I will welcome the day he is free as this truly is a miscarriage of justice. Our thoughts are with you Kevin...
