Case Commentary: The Queen on the Application of Solicitors' Regulation Authority v Imran Judgment

Posted by Cassandra Scarbrough on

In line with other recent cases, this case reminds us that a striking off order is not inevitable in all cases of dishonesty. In considering whether a case is 'exceptional' the particular circumstances of the dishonesty must be considered at the heart of the decision and the impact of such dishonesty on the reputation of the wider profession, including the likely public perception of such conduct. This case reinforces the fact that deference will be paid to the particular expertise of the tribunal in considering which cases can be considered exceptional.
