Vikram Sachdeva wins appeal in Administrative Court from Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal raising topical issue of the obligation on one partner to supervise another partner.


CategoryNewsDate

Mr. Justice Bean held that the breach found by the SDT relating to supervision within Rule 5.01 of the Solicitors’ Code of Conduct 2007 had to be quashed, for there was no evidence as to what action the solicitors had been obliged to take. It is also the first High Court case which grapples with the meaning of the word “staff” in Rule 5.01, which the judge held did not include other partners.
