Theft by client's employee

AWEB's West Country Practitioner has been informed of a case of theft by an employee of a client. See Practitioner's Diary 8 February 2008,

Have you had experience of similar situations? What was the effect on the client? How did it affect your relationship with the client? What was your experience of dealing with the police? Do you have any views on the operation of the criminal justice system?

With the benefit of hindsight what do you now wish you had done differently or known previously?

Do you have any advice for AWEB's West Country Practitioner?

(Where criminal or civil legal proceedings are, or could be, still ongoing please ensure that any details in your response are anonymised - and that you do not libel anyone!)
