Solicitors Regulation Authority v Chan and others

Solicitor – Disciplinary proceedings. The appellant Solicitors Regulation Authority challenged the Solicitors' Disciplinary Tribunal's (the tribunal) conclusions and the fine of £15,000 imposed on the first and second respondents. The Divisional Court, in allowing the appeal, held that the evidence and the tribunal's primary findings of fact compelled a conclusion that there had been a want of integrity, a failure to act with independence, and that the respondents had acted so as to diminish the trust the public would place in them and the provision of legal services.
