Reasons/basis
The Facts
Mr Simon Alexander Brooks a person who is not a solicitor, was employed as a Licensed Conveyancer by MB Legal Services Limited t/a Brooks and Partners based at Lyons House 2 Station Road Frimley Surry GU16 7JA between February 1996 and January 2015. During his employment with MB Legal Services Limited Mr Brooks was found to have taken cash and wine from clients for their legal costs and had not accounted to the firm for the money and wine he received. He also prepared two statutory declarations with incorrect information. He was convicted of fraud on 26 July 2016 at Guildford Magistrates Court. His conduct was found to be dishonest and breached SRA Principles 2, 4, 6 and 10 and rule 29.2 of the SRA Accounts Rules 2011.

Mr Brooks resigned his position and was placed on garden leave from 24 December 2014. He is currently employed by Simeous Ltd a licensed conveyancing company regulated by the Council for Licensed Conveyancers.

Mr Brooks was made subject to an order pursuant to section 43(2) of the Solicitors Act 1974 (as amended) and was given a written rebuke. He was also ordered to pay costs of ?1,250.

Section 43 Solicitors Act 1974
Finding
We find that Mr Brooks is or was involved in a legal practice (as defined by section 43 (1A) of the Solicitors Act 1974) but is not a solicitor and has been convicted of a criminal offence which is such that in the opinion of the Society it would be undesirable for him to be involved in a legal practice in any of the ways described in the order below.

Order
To make a section 43 order that with effect from the date of the letter or email notifying Mr Brooks of this decision:

(i) no solicitor shall employ or remunerate him in connection with their practice as a solicitor;

(ii) no employee of a solicitor shall employ or remunerate him in connection with the solicitor?s practice;

(iii) no recognised body shall employ or remunerate him;

(iv) no manager or employee of a recognised body shall employ or remunerate him in connection with the business of that body;

(v) no recognised body or manager or employee of such a body shall permit him to be a manager of the body; and

(vi) no recognised body or manager or employee of such a body shall permit him to have an interest in the body

except in accordance with a Society permission.

This order is subject to an internal right of appeal and a statutory right of review to the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal.
