Solicitor Meredith Sykes of Scotland; ethical goblin


The Law Society presented Meredith Graham Sykes with a law license in 1986 after he graduated from the University of Edinburgh School of Law.


The Scottish Solicitors’ Discipline Tribunal found Meredith guilty of the following misconduct.

  • Engaged in unconscionable delay in recording deeds
  • Failed to keep the books of his practice up to date
  • Failed to designate checks
  • Paid fees to himself before fee notes were recorded
  • Failed to carry out monthly reconciliation of his firm’s clients account
  • Charged excessive fees or fees for work which had not been carried out
  • Failed to comply with the Money Laundering Regulations 1993
  • Failed to carry out quarterly reconciliations of invested funds
  • Failed to invest clients’ funds as required
  • Failed to issue conflict letters
  • Knowingly acted in a situation in which there was a conflict of interest between him and his client where he had a personal financial interest in the subject matter of the advice given
  • Attempted to obtain payment from the Scottish Legal Aid Board by misrepresentation

As a direct consequence of his misconduct, the enablers for Solicitor Misfits sitting on the Discipline Tribunal punished Meredith by gifting him with a complimentary censure.


As we speak (ca. June 2018), Meredith practices at 235 Hamilton Road Halfway in Cambuslang, Scotland.
