It was found that Mrs Kendall has failed to act in a way that upholds public trust and confidence in the solicitors’ profession and in the legal services provided by authorised persons and failed to act in a way that encourages equality, diversity and inclusion in breach of principles 2 and 6 of the SRA Principles 2019.
