It's a bit odd to cede control of your client account like that.

What is the point of client account rules if the solicitor gives up control of the account.
Why would the solicitors be bailed out?

Interesting site as well.

Has a very 'retro' look 'n' feel to it, but it pulls no punches - see another of their trending stories: "A third of lawyers admit to padding time sheets"!

In my experience the vast majority of accountants and solicitors are totally honest. However on those rare occasions where a professional person goes wrong he or she goes VERY wrong! That may have been the case here, and the outcome looks to have been tragic.
