Outcome: Control of non-qualified staff (section 43 order)
This outcome was reached by SRA decision.
Decision details

This outcome was reached by agreement.

Ms Ffion Wearing, who is a former employee of BDE Law Limited, agrees to the following outcome to the investigation of her conduct by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA):

(a) from the date of this agreement, she is subject to an order under section 43 of the Solicitors Act 1974 (as amended), as follows:

(i) no solicitor shall employ or remunerate her in connection with his/her practice as a solicitor;
(ii) no employee of a solicitor shall employ or remunerate her in connection with the solicitor's practice;
(iii) no recognised body shall employ or remunerate her;
(iv) no manager or employee of a recognised body shall employ or remunerate her in connection with the business of that body;
(v) no recognised body or manager or employee of such a body shall permit her to be a manager of the body; and
(vi) no recognised body or manager or employee of such body shall permit her to have an interest in the body

except in accordance with the SRA's permission.

(b) to the publication of this agreement.

Reasons/basis

Ms Wearing, who is not a solicitor, was employed as a case handler at BDE Law Limited from 16 November 2015 to 4 January 2016.

On 29 December 2015, Ms Wearing was convicted at Swansea Crown Court of two counts of fraud contrary to section 1 of the Fraud Act 2006 for offences she committed whilst working as an administrator at a retail company. She was sentenced to 6 months' imprisonment which was subject to a suspended sentence order for 12 months.
Why the agreed outcome is appropriate

The SRA and Ms Wearing agree that a section 43 order is appropriate because:

Ms Wearing is not a solicitor.
by virtue of her employment at BDE Law Limited, she was involved in a legal practice.
She has been convicted of an offence which makes it undesirable for her to be involved in a legal practice.

The offence makes it undesirable for Ms Wearing to be involved in a legal practice because it involves dishonesty. Law firms and the people working within them hold a position of trust. Someone who has been found to have acted dishonestly has demonstrated that they may abuse the trust placed in them for their own advantage.

The SRA considers it appropriate that this agreement is published in the interests of transparency in the regulatory and disciplinary process.
Acting in a way which is inconsistent with this Agreement

Ms Wearing agrees that she will not act in any way which is inconsistent with this agreement.
