Solicitor - Disciplinary proceedings - Appeal - Appellant lending name to partnership but not involved in its running - Partnership failing to comply with rules on solicitors' accounts - Tribunal finding appellant guilty of conduct unbecoming a solicitor and imposing fine - Whether tribunal in error.
It was inevitable that the Solicitors' Disciplinary Tribunal, on the material before it, would find the appellant guilty of conduct unbefitting a solicitor where he had lent his name to a partnership that had failed to comply with the rules on accounts, notwithstanding that he had had no involvement with the running of that partnership. The fine of 7,500 that was imposed was a sanction well within the discretion of the tribunal.
