Irregular…but not uncommon

A former Ince & Co partner is under investigation by Scotland Yard after allegedly deciding that the best place for £3m of client money was his own bank account (see story).

The firm suspended energy chief Andrew Iyer last July over what it called “irregular financial behaviour” (see story).

Given the news that has come out of the City of late, the firm might want to change that to “bordering on the semi-regular financial behaviour”.

Of course, no one is suggesting that Hogan Lovells is relieved that someone has taken the spotlight off its own alleged fraud (see story), but The Lawyer understands that someone was playing Kool & the Gang’s ’Let’s Celebrate’ pretty loud at Atlantic House today.
