Striking-off draws near
Just a month to go
I shall soon be a struck-off non-practising solicitor. I explained why in a piece I published here in March.
Today, the regulator sent me a final warning:
Watch this space.
Update 21 June: It turns out that I am not going to be struck off after all, according to Paul Philip, chief executive of the Solicitors Regulation Authority. “Following a short period to collate the data, we will then issue removal notices to those customers who have not responded,” he told Neil Rose.
So that’s all right then. I’m not a solicitor losing a professional qualification; I’m a customer being removed from a database after an “overwhelmingly positive” process. So positive, in fact, that some 40% of non-practising “customers” currently on the roll will never need to trouble the regulator again.
