Top Lawyer Fired For £1m Expenses Fraud

Top lawyer fired for £1m expenses fraudA senior partner at one of London’s biggest law firms has been fired for falsely claiming more than £1 million in expenses.
After an internal investigation he was confronted and admitted making false claims – the equivalent of £5,000 a week over four years.
The lawyer in question specialised in commercial fraud and asset tracing and worked on some of the biggest cases in recent years, including the investigation into Madoff’s Ponzi scheme and the battle between the liquidators of BCCI and the Bank of England.
The firm said that he had agreed to repay the money within a fortnight.  The case has been referred to the Solicitors Regulation Authority, which has started an inquiry that could lead to a disciplinary tribunal.
