Former solicitors meeting

A MEETING has been organised for residents to discuss issues with former solicitors Walter, Scott and Ross.

Terrence Devine, director of legal advisors firm New Future Services, has contacted former clients of the St Mary’s Street firm which was closed down in 2009 because of financial irregularities.

Since then the building has stood empty and residents have raised concerns about vandalism, squatting and the threat of arson.

Earlier this year the Solicitors Regulation Authority admitted it had found confidential files in the building three years after it was meant to have been cleared out.

Former clients or neighbours with concerns about the building can discuss them with Mr Devine at Malin House, St Mary’s Street at 7pm on Thursday April 26.
