The reasons for the decision were that the Committee resolved that:
1) Mr Bevan and Bevans Bray Walker Ltd had failed to comply with the SRA Accounts Rules 2011 and the SRA Principles 2011.
2) Intervention was neccesary to protect the interests of cleints (or former or potential clients of Mr Bevan and Bevans Bray Walker Limited or the beneficiaries of any trust for which they are or were a trustee.
3) Grounds for intervention existed under Paragraph 32(1)(c) of the Administration of Justice Act 1985 as a relevant insolvency event had occurred by virtue of Bevans Bray Walker Limited entering into administration.
The PC of Mr Bevan was suspended by virtue of the intervention resolution. No resolution was passed in relation to Robert Jones, Hugh Feeny and Stephen Brice. Although they are not currently authorised as a firm of solicitors they continue to hold unconditional practising certificates.
