Copyright Law Firm Will Face Disciplinary Tribunal

Davenport Lyons is the law firm that represented a number of rights owners in file-sharing cases. However, their practices were similar to the ASC:Law, and now they ended in the same way: things didn’t turn out as great as the company would have wished, because its methods were considered out of the legal boundaries. Indeed, Davenport Lyons’ practices violated those boundaries since the law firm used them to extort money from suspected file-sharers, threatening with a potential lawsuit.

Today both a former and a current partner of this company are facing the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal. Within the independent investigation, the justice arm has reached to equity partner David Gore and ex-IP partner Brian Miller. Both of them face a few allegations like acting in a way that was most likely to kill the trust people place in the company or in the legal profession as a whole.

Brian Miller and David Gore have been sending out notification letters between 2006 and 2009. The letters were addressed to thousands of Internet subscribers, who were accused of infringing copyright by sharing illegal content on the Internet. Right after the recipients had been intimidated, they were offered to settle out of court by paying up to $1,000 as a compensation for the damages they were suspected to cause in order to avoid a trial.

In addition, the allegations against the company partners noted that they both used their position as solicitors to take unfair advantage of people who received the letters of claim. This was supposed to be done for either their own or their clients’ benefit. It was a consumer body “Which?”, who forwarded a complaint to the Solicitors Regulation Authority calling the letters sent out by Brian Miller and David Gore “bullying”. After this the unfair practices ended and last year, after the investigation, the Solicitors Regulation Authority took a decision to refer the partners to the tribunal.

“Which?” hopes that the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal will thoroughly investigate the matter, and in case of the claims against this company being upheld, it will send a strong message to the lawyers about the way to treat consumers. The hearing in question is scheduled to last one week.

lawyers are out of control and think they can do whatever they want to anyone without retribution.
