Glasgow solicitor struck off

William Meechan, a1 solicitor responsible for a litany of failures has been found guilty of professional misconduct as a result of numerous failures, including dealing with executry [estate] proceeds in such a way as to conceal a client’s financial position when she was claiming state benefits, and failing to issue a fee note to an executry before deducting his fees from the estate account.

The Tribunal could not accept that a would address the serious nature of this conduct as significantly as the honesty and trustworthiness of the Respondent demonstrated that the Respondent was not a fit person to be a solicitor. The Tribunal unanimously concluded that the appropriate disposal was to strike the name of the Respondent from the Roll of Solicitors in Scotland.
