I’ve been away on vacation and missed the reporting from James Young that the ethics complaints against Gill & Gallinger have been dismissed. Because I mentioned this complaint on this blog, it’s only fair that I mention the post about the conclusion of the complaint here, and allow readers to make up their own minds. The result of the investigation appears to be that Gill & Gallinger violated no rules of professional conduct when they sent the original BVBL the infamous demand letter.
I don’t have any information on this beyond what James reports, and because of how these things work (as I understand it) I doubt I ever will. Although I was provided some information about this complaint when it was filed, I never saw the full complaint or have any idea why it was handled in the manner that it was. I was never told who made the complaint, only that it was filed, nor did I ask for it to be filed. I believe it was the act of someone who cares deeply about the profession of law and wanted to ensure it is practiced at the highest level.
I’d love to know the details, though, as much as I am sure many of you would. But tonight, the breeze is good, the beer is cold, and the service is wonderful. I can wait.
