Solicitor – Practice as solicitor – Breach of interdict. Court of Session: In proceedings by the Law Society of Scotland for breach of interdict, the court held that the respondent, a solicitor who had been interdicted from holding himself out as entitled by law to practice as a solicitor and from pretending to be a solicitor, was in breach of interdict by expressly holding himself out as or pretending to be a solicitor, and by holding himself out as or pretending to be a solicitor by implication by providing services that solicitors normally provided while allowing third parties to have the impression he was a solicitor.
