Every man for himself
The Diary recently stumbled upon an intriguing insight into the cutthroat world of insolvency and fraud litigation.An eye-catching profile of Denton Wilde Sapte partner Neil Griffiths on the firm's website includes his own personal take on the oft-ignored practice area."Fraud work is fun," says the chipper-looking Griffiths, who says that it keeps him on his toes at all times and allows him to take on a Sherlock Holmes-esque detective persona.However, Griffiths' definition of fun is perhaps undermined by the revelation that sometimes even solicitors go down with their dishonest clients.In Griffiths' own words: "By the end of one recent case, the defendant and his solicitor were in jail and three other opposing solicitors had been struck off!" Nice to see the spirit of fraternity is still alive and well among the legal profession.
