Abigail Bright acts for ICAEW in successful case against incompetent accountant

19.07.17 | |

A tribunal of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales Disciplinary Committee accepted Abigail Bright’s submissions that financial transactions in which Mr B (an ICAEW-registered Chartered Accountant) involved himself were such as to bring discredit on himself, the Institute and the profession of accountancy.  The case against Mr B involved allegations that he misrepresented investors as to the success of a company involved in dishonest financial conduct.


Jessica Sutherland-Mack, Legal Adviser at the ICAEW, instructed Abigail to advise the Institute and to present its case against Mr B before the tribunal.


The terms of complaint formulated by the ICAEW were that, contrary to Disciplinary Bye-law 4.1b, Mr B 'performed his professional work or the duties of his employment, or conducted his practice, inefficiently or incompetently to such an extent, or on such a number of occasions, as to bring discredit on himself, the Institute or the profession of accountancy'.
