Outcome: Control of non-qualified staff (section 43 order)
Outcome details

This outcome was reached by SRA decision.

Reasons/basis

Mr Adam Grant was employed as a paralegal by Neil Hudgell Limited between November 2013 and 6 February 2016. He is not a solicitor.

During the course of his employment Mr Grant was found to have:



Backdated three letters in 2015 to the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) on two matters. He backdated these in order to mislead the CICA as to the date when the relevant applications for review (and evidence in the case of one of the matters) had been submitted to the CICA.

Made false statements to the CICA during a call on, and in a letter dated, 21 May 2015 in relation to when one of the applications had been sent.



His conduct in this regard was found to be dishonest and to have breached SRA Principles 2 (act with integrity) and 6 (behave in a way that maintains the public's trust in you and the provision of legal services).

Mr Grant was made subject to an order pursuant to section 43(2) of the Solicitors Act 1974 (as amended), was given a written rebuke and ordered to pay a financial penalty of ?2,000. He was also ordered to pay the SRA's costs of ?600 in investigation this matter.

It is understood that Mr Grant is not currently working in an SRA authorised practice.

In the matter of Mr Adam Grant of Cawood, North Yorkshire, a person who is or was involved in legal practice but is not a solicitor.

Section 43 Solicitors Act 1974 (as amended)

Finding

Mr Grant was involved in a legal practice (as defined by section 43(1A) of the Solicitors Act 1974) but not as a solicitor and has occasioned or been a party to an act or default which involved such conduct on his part 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 an order pursuant to section 43 that with effect from the date of the letter or email notifying Mr Grant of this decision:

(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;

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