Disciplinary Tribunal Decision - McConnachie 2021/02
The Faculty of Advocates Discipline Tribunal has now ruled on a complaint made about the actions of Brian McConnachie KC. The Tribunal upheld an appeal against the decision of a Complaints Committee, and held that Mr McConnachie was guilty of professional misconduct. With regard to sanction, the Tribunal has decided that Mr McConnachie will be subject to a severe written censure in respect of each of the heads of complaint upheld by the Tribunal, and required to pay a fine of £8,000.
The Discipline Tribunal operates independently of Faculty, and in this instance was chaired by Lord Drummond-Young, a retired Senator of the College of Justice. He sat along with two Kings Counsel, and three laypersons. The decision on the appeal, and on sanction, was unanimous.
