    Just published:

    Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal judgment: Philip Joseph Shiner

    78 pages.

    In summary: Deliberate, calculated and repeated misconduct, continued over several years, and Shiner sought to conceal his wrongdoing by the construction of elaborate strategies to mislead the SRA.

    Total costs over £720k.

    The Tribunal wasn't having any of his 'unfit to attend', either.

    Hard to see how he can avoid a criminal prosecution. Nice.

  2. @ViroBono,
    You forgot to mention him being Struck Off.
     
  3. If it was a judgement written about my conduct I would feel somewhat uncomfortable as to the direction it might lead my life.

    No punches pulled by the authors.

  5. I am obviously not au fait with the legal system but this is the lawyers associations report on a lawyer who has been found to be in breach of their code of conduct, therefore not a criminal matter surely?

    This is concerned with him being stripped of professional recognition due to misconduct. It's separate to any criminal charges.
     
  7. That's how I understood it. Presumably he'll be stripped of all the 'honours' and accolades awarded.

    I'd flay the bugger.
     
  9. As generous as that?

  10. Is this scalp the last one?

    Or are there more sweaty palmed lawyers?
     
  11. You're kidding, right?
