He has also advised solicitors on regulatory compliance in respect of the Solicitors Regulation Authority rules concerning fitness to practise, supervision of trainees, handling client funds as well as practice management. In one scenario, in light of the personal insolvency of a managing partner of a law firm arising out of very difficult and challenging personal circumstances, Tahir successfully advised on and helped the solicitor to retain a practising certificate. As a result the individual concerned was able to continue to earn a living working as a solicitor.
Tahir has also advised on an appeal to the ACCA where the panel decided to withdraw an auditor’s eligibility for audit registration following an unsatisfactory outcome to an Audit Monitoring visit. The effect of which was the immediate revocation of the auditor’s license. Tahir outlined serious irregularities and issues concerning due process and an abuse of process. There also arose questions in respect of undertakings being given by ACCA representatives to the auditor in question.
Other regulatory compliance work has more recently focussed on advising barristers on compliance with the Code of Conduct against wrongful allegations of serious breaches of the Code, allegations of dishonesty and professional misconduct, as well as allegations of breach of confidentiality and data protection.
