There are two new entries from the archive into the RollOnFriday Dodgy Solicitor Top Trumps pack this week.

First up, Simon Morgan, formerly of Milners, Leeds. Ex-office manager Morgan is currently eighteen months into his seven year jail term for stealing an impressive £1.4 million from his former employer. He spent the cash on using private jets and a Ferrari and on expensive holidays.

Second, and long overdue his own RollOnFriday Top Trump is Hogan Lovells' nightmare Christopher Grierson. The former partner was recently convicted of stealing £1.3 million in phony expense claims from his firm, much of which he gave to his mistress. Given his extensive plea in mitigation, Grierson escaped what could have been an extremely stiff sentence, but will still serve three years.

My personal favourite was the partner who nicked £800k setting up a fake bank account as "Ian Revue" and then banked cheques made supposedly made out to the Inland Revenue.
