Solicitor devastated by £100k intervention

first_imgAndrew Williams and Nigel WestThe intervention was withdrawn by the High Court in December with the consent of the SRA. The SRA offered £50,000 towards Williams’ costs on top of its own costs of £65,000. He will receive no compensation.Mr Justice Blackburne told the court it was a ‘million pities’ that a solicitor with an unblemished record for so many years should find himself in such difficulties.Williams added: ‘In my case, the value of expert legal advice and representation given cannot be overemphasised. I was given no notice of the intervention or the opportunity to see the report that was sent by the investigators to the adjudication panel. I had no opportunity to challenge any aspect of the report.’The solicitor now intends to restart his firm with a skeleton staff – once the SRA returns computers which were seized as part of the intervention.West, who has overturned four interventions against solicitors, said clients can feel daunted by a process that seems to give them little chance of reopening their firm. The lack of reported examples of interventions being overturned – with each of his successes the SRA gave consent to drop the order without fighting in the High Court – means many solicitors are unwilling to take on the cases.He said the SRA should have disclosed details of its investigation so Williams at least had a chance to plead his case.‘I would also suggest the intervention decision-maker should have judicial experience,’ West added. ‘Some of the adjudication panel have legal experience but others do not. To make such a draconian ruling as shutting a firm down – with the devastating potential effect on someone’s life – it needs someone with sufficient experience.’Gordon Ramsay, SRA director for legal and enforcement, said: ‘We usually engage with solicitors about interventions so that they can put their case across in light of the evidence we have. We do not give solicitors notice where we believe this would present a further risk to client interests. We believed that risk was present in this case.‘All evidence collected during the intervention, such as computer equipment, is used as part of our investigation. Once we have finished with it, we can release it to its rightful owners.’ A solicitor has spoken of his anguish and disillusionment after the professional regulator withdrew a threat to close down his practice at the last minute.Andrew Williams was at a CPD lecture last October when a call came from his office to say the Solicitors Regulation Authority had arrived to intervene and shut down Dagenham firm Lillywhite Williams LLP.The family solicitor, who has been in practice for more than 30 years, was suspected of impropriety due to an association with another solicitor who was under SRA investigation.The SRA visited his firm three times between April and June but ignored his insistence that the firm had cut all ties with the third party.In the event, the regulator arrived without warning and Williams’ bank accounts were frozen and staff placed on immediate notice. With the suspension of his practising certificate, he was not even able to contact clients – some of who were vulnerable and had learning difficulties – to explain what had happened.‘I had staff in tears and clients who must have felt I had left them high and dry,’ Williams said. ‘I have experienced serious financial difficulties and am lucky to still have my house. My family have been very badly affected and it’s an emotional stain that will never be removed.’After the SRA had seized everything from his office, Williams had just eight days to decide whether to appeal.Barrister Richard Alomo offered initial advice and helped him draft a lengthy witness statement, before solicitor Nigel West, of national firm RadcliffesLeBrasseur, and Greg Treverton-Jones QC agreed to take on Williams’ case on a conditional fee agreement.last_img read more


The Crew Cap: Sounders Shut Out Crew 1-0 in Columbus

first_img Danny Simpson Today’s match in Columbus didn’t really get exciting until the final few minutes when Seattle’s Jordan Morris hit a left-footed close range shot into the bottom left corner past Crew goalie Steve Clark.”Three in three for the U.S. international and a late late goal for your Seattle Sounders!” #SEAvCLBhttps://t.co/bydVZ4Wd4w— Seattle Sounders FC (@SoundersFC) May 1, 2016Aside from that goal, Clark had a great game making seven saves on eight shots.That’s a big NO from Steve! #CrewSC #SEAvCLB pic.twitter.com/NpAHNQlTzs— Columbus Crew SC (@ColumbusCrewSC) April 30, 2016The Crew only managed to put a quarter of their shots on goal (4 for 16) to Seattle’s 8 of 16. The Sounders were better on defense and able to limit the Crew’s shot attempts by not allowing the Crew to take a variety of distance shots from various locations, while the Sounders were able to take more shots from a variety of locations from farther away which drew the Crew’s defense out just long enough and at the right moment during the 88th minute to sneak past them and score from only a few feet away. Seattle was better on defense by forcing the shots more toward the inside of the field where the defensive help was more readily available. After the only goal of the game, the Crew would get off 3 shots in the 90th minute from Ethan Finlay, Waylon Francis and Kei Kamara, all blocked by Seattle’s goaltender Stefan Frei who needless to say had himself a good outing in front of the home crowd of Seattle. Time of possession was split down the middle 50-50. After the loss today against Seattle, the Crew now sits in 9th place in the Eastern Conference with 8 points (3 for a win, 1 for a draw, and 0 for a loss) and an overall record of 2-4-2 (wins-losses-draws). The Montreal Impact is currently in first place of the Eastern Conference with 14 points and the Colorado Rapids are atop the Western Conference with 17. Next up for the Crew is a home match on Saturday May 7th against the top team in the Western Conference, Montreal Impact SC. Match begins at 7:30 ET. Go Crew!

Unibet – RWC 2015 to break all rugby wagering records

first_img Unibet backs #GoRacingGreen as lead racing charity  July 28, 2020 Related Articles Kindred: Spelinspektionen has failed in its management of Swedish marketplace June 11, 2020 Share Despite host nation England not qualifying out of the group stage and no home nation’s side making the semi-finals, Unibet states that it had been delighted by Rugby World Cup 2015 trading.Detailing market performance Ed Nicholson, Head of Unibet UK Marketing Operations commented that RWC 2015 will likely become the bookmakers biggest ever rugby market.“We have been delighted with trading so far and England’s exit has not dampened the interest for punters. This will be Unibet’s biggest RWC ever, and we have seen a real move away from the traditional Pre Match betting markets towards our live product, especially with so many tight Quarter Finals last weekend.  We will be amazed if the final doesn’t break our all-time rugby turnover record.”Noting marketing intricacies, Nicholson  added that ‘tight’ matches in the RWC group stages combined with shocks, had helped gain wagering interesting for the competition.“Wales’ defeat of England may have been a big surprise to the pundits, but not to our customers, as they were actually very well backed! Aside from that, it has been a particularly solid tournament – good turnover,  a few shocks – many of the so called smaller teams such as Japan, Romania and USA getting closer to the more established nations than many thought. But, with 3 of the 4 expected teams making the Semi Finals – according to the initial betting – ultimately the expected teams have progressed with only England missing out.”Unibet’s strong RWC trading may however turn soar, if the heavily backed New Zealand side take home the Web Ellis Cup. Prior to the tournament beginning, the bookmaker had branded the side the “All Backs” due to their popularity throughout all RWC betting markets.“It has to be anyone aside from New Zealand for our trading team! Unibet has a huge risk on the All Blacks winning the tournament with customers backing them front start to finish. Although we have had some potentially shrewd bets on Australia when they were as big as 9/1 Share Kindred marks fastest route to ‘normal trading’ as it delivers H1 growth July 24, 2020 StumbleUpon Submitlast_img read more

Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments Proposed look of Dollar Tree.by James Jordan, Sumner Newscow — The Wellington City Council passed two resolutions at a special meeting Thursday that will pave the way for a Dollar Tree store to come to town. The council approved a re-platting and a developer’s agreement that was needed in order for the project to continue.A developer representing an architectural firm of CGW Transportation Consultants who in turn were representing the new property owners Ridge Investment Group LLC were at the meeting Thursday. They said they hope to be open in September. Because of the tight schedule a special meeting was set for last night.One of the issues was a variance, or exception, for the allowed height of the sign the store will have. The long term plan for the area limits the size and height of signs, but the developers wanted a sign larger than what the code allowed.They settled on a 25-foot limit for an exception, which was agreeable to the developer a well.The council talked about discussing the issue of signs further at a later time. Exceptions have already been given to Walmart and McDonalds.The store will be located north of McDonalds and at the corner of Boundary and U.S 160. Seventeenth street will also border the property, and the developer will have to put in sidewalks on one side of the street. The code called for both sides to have sidewalks. The planning commision had recommended the changes, so an exception was given there as well.The developers agreement included things like water, sewer and electric. All of those issues were agreed upon so no special arrangements were needed.The developer is Ridge Investment Group and they will be leasing the property to Dollar Tree. The development company also has its eyes on the adjacent property and is hoping to develop more commercial property in the area.Follow us on Facebook.Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more
