Solicitor Richard Barca of United Kingdom; ethical goblin  

 

The Law Society presented Richard Gregory Barca with a law license in 1986.

 

The Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal found Dick guilty of the following misconduct

  • Acted in a conflict of interest where there was a significant risk thereof in respect of his client
  • Made a misleading claim in a witness statement served in litigation bought by R Solicitors on behalf of their client Mr. O, in which they had sought to contest the validity of a legal charge over Mrs. JWB’s property in favor of Dick’s company
  • Conflict involved Dick gaining over £49,000 (US $59,503.00) from the interest on the loan he had made to his client
  • Failed to ensure that his client had received independent legal advice and had placed his own interests above hers as he continued to benefit while the loan and accumulating was outstanding
  • Client was vulnerable as she had been at risk of losing her home
  • Should have known better than to offer a loan to her in such an emotionally heightened and charged environment, without insisting that she took independent legal advice

As a direct consequence of his misconduct, the enablers for Solicitor Misfits sitting on the Disciplinary Tribunal punished Dick by gifting him with a complimentary fine of £20,000 (US $24,285.00) and assessed costs of £26,000 (US $28,205.00)

 

As we speak (ca. September 2019), Dick practices with Wilson Barca LLP at 18 Carlisle Street in London, England.
