Solicitor – Practice. Following an intervention into a solicitor's practice by the Law Society for dishonesty, it could not be said that the words 'all sums of money held by or on behalf of the solicitor or his firm in connection with … his practice or former practice' in para 6(2)(a) in sch 1 of the Solicitors Act 1974 included the right to recover loans made by the errant solicitor from his client account to third parties, prior to the intervention. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, accordingly allowed the defendant solicitor's appeal.
