These summaries of decisions have been made by Lawyers Standards Committees on complaints made against lawyers and employees of lawyers since the Lawyers and Conveyancers Act 2006 (LCA) came into force on 1 August 2008. The Standards Committees are the first formal decision makers for complaints against lawyers.
Please note that this is not a comprehensive record of all complaints made against lawyers. It is a record only of decisions where publication has been directed by the Standards Committee in the particular case. Under s142(2) of the LCA, only a Standards Committee can direct publication of a decision, with or without the identity of the lawyer being disclosed.
