Solicitors' Disciplinary Tribunal: appeal by Law Society successfully resisted
Nicholas Yell successfully acted on behalf of a female solicitor resisting an appeal by the Law Society to the Administrative Court against the decision of the Solicitors' Disciplinary Tribunal disqualifying her from practising as a solicitor for a year. She and another solicitor were accused of professional misconduct enabling an unsupervised clerk to indulge in money laundering of £193 million resulting in a loss to HM Customs & Excise of between £20-£30 million. The Law Society was represented by the Chairman of the Bar. The appeal was discontinued.
