  • Yes he was an equity partner, although not sure when he left.

  • Ian Austin was managing partner at the time so I guess you start the investigation by speaking to him

  • I wonder what the senior partners of Gateley, Clyde & Co and Hill Dicks make this accusation.... and I gather that other serious allegations were made in court yesterday... no doubt the Lawyer will confirm...
    I wonder what those former Halliwells staff, salaried and fixed share partners who are still working with Halliwells equity partners make of all this.....

    Don't forget the other firms where the Spinningfields defendants now practice. How about a comment from Kennedys on their Sheffield office head and former businesswoman of the year?
    Would that sort of business acumen get past week 1 of The Apprentice?

  • I am appalled by this case, it brings both the profession and BDO into complete disrepute if so much as a sniff of this is true. What particularly upsets solicitors from other firms in Sheffield is Ms Liversidge continuing to represent the Chamber of Commerce in the city. It is about time she was asked to step down.

  • I recall the FD was alleged in a previous article of receiving a substantial sum from the reverse premium? £500k or something?

  • There is something of the African Savannah about this - just when you thought the carcas of the wilderbeast was still and lifeless, a lion-chewed ear,a maggot-infested spleen or a cockroach-inhabited scrotum twitches -please, please, please, let this saga conclude so that we can move onto "Halliwells the Movie"

  • The SRA must be getting twitchy about this. It can't be long before someone starts making comparisons between this matter, and what would have happened if it had been some little BME practice.

  • This was not a two partner firm and the ex partners have loadsamoney. Consequently, do not expect any actions by the SRA. They can't attack people who might make it to the ECHR before being bankrupted.
