A Stockport-based law firm has been closed down and five solicitors have had their licences suspended amid claims of dishonesty.It's terribly sad to see an old, established English name brought low...
Wolstenholmes, which opened in 1818, is being investigated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA).
The Legal Complaints Commission (LCC) is dealing with 116 complaints from customers who say they have lost money.How could a reputable firm like this have been involved in dishonest dealings?
One of those suspended, Imran Hussain, apologised for the current situation and for distress caused to customers.Ah. Never mind.
Helen Murgatroyd, Bobby Shabbir, Bilal Khawaja and Nasser Ilyas also had their licences suspended just before Christmas.
