Manchester paralegal banned for stealing £294,000 from firm

first_imgThe Solicitors Regulation Authority has moved to bar a paralegal found to have stolen around £294,000 from his firm.According to an SRA notice published this week, Paul Young stole the money during the four-and-a-half years he was employed to work in the Manchester office of Berrymans Lace Mawer. It was not explained how the misconduct happened or how it was detected.The SRA said Young, who left the firm in 2019 and whose current employment status is unknown, had acted dishonestly and should no longer be involved in a legal practice. He was made subject to a section 43 order preventing him from working for any law firm without SRA permission. He must also pay the SRA’s £600 costs.Following publication of the decision, a spokesperson for the firm said: ‘We can confirm that an individual employed by BLM was dismissed last year when it was established that their actions breached both their contract of employment and the SRA’s code of conduct.‘The individual is not a solicitor but their conduct was immediately reported to the SRA. The matter is now the subject of an ongoing criminal investigation. We therefore cannot provide any further comment at this time.’last_img read more
