Outcome details

Decision details

The Authorised Officer DECIDED to grant Miss Jane Deborah Whitfield a practising certificate for the practice year 2011-2012 subject to the conditions that she is not a sole signatory to any client or office account and does not have the power alone to authorise electronic payments from any client or office account. 

Reasons/basis

Miss Whitfield was subject to regulation 3.1(g) and (k)(ii) as a consequence of financial matters.

Accordingly, the Authorised Officer was required to consider whether to impose any practising certificate condition in accordance with Regulation 7 of the SRA Practising Regulations 2011 which sets out the purposes for which conditions may, in the public interest, be imposed on a solicitor's practising certificate.

Miss Whitfield is subject to Reg 3.1(g) and Reg 3.1(k)(ii) as a result of having entered into an IVA, which remains ongoing. Accordingly, the Authorised Officer was satisfied that the above conditions remained necessary, reasonable and proportionate in the interests of the public, and that no other restriction on her legal practice was required.

The Authorised Officer gave consideration to Regulation 7.1(a), which states that the SRA may impose one or more conditions on a practising certificate when the SRA considers the individual concerned unsuitable to undertake certain activities in relation to a legal practice, and that imposing the condition will, in the public interest, limit, restrict, halt or prevent the involvement of the individual concerned in those activities.
