Previously the SRA ordered that Mr Schwartz be suspended from practice as a solicitor for a period of 5 years from 9 September 2016, but that the suspension be suspended for 5 years from the same date subject to compliance with the following restrictions imposed by the Tribunal on the
Respondent’s practice as a solicitor.
Mr Schwartz failed to keep to the restrictions, and during the course of giving live oral evidence to the Tribunal during the hearing which took place on 22 December 2016 Mr Schwartz admitted:
- that he had deliberately and knowingly breached the restrictions on 14 September 2016;
- that he had then lied about having done so in a witness statement provided to the SRA and to the Tribunal at the December hearing.
The Tribunal therefore decided to activate the 5 year suspension.
Mr Schwartz is therefore suspended for 5 years from 9 September 2016
