Panel to examine how the Bar Clients’ Security Fund operates

first_imgIt was not a happy indication of how some lawyers are handling the current sour economy.“The claims [to the Bar’s Clients’ Security Fund ] are certainly getting bigger,” Bar President Jay White told the Board of Governors on April 3.That trend, White said, caused him to appoint a special task force to review fund rules, procedures, and operations. Board member Greg Coleman is chair of the new panel, which is charged with making recommendations by the board’s May 29 meeting.Coleman told the board that the fund, which started the year with a $1.6 million budget, likely will be short in paying claims made this year unless it uses funds in the program’s $3.8 million in reserves.The fund was established to reimburse clients for claims that involve misappropriation or for reimbursement of attorneys’ fees when no useful services were provided. Attorneys’ fee claims are capped at $2,500. Misappropriation claims are capped at $50,000. Under current rule, claims are paid up to $25,000 upon approval. If the approved claim is between $25,000 and $50,000, the first $25,000 is paid upon approval. The remaining sums are paid at the end of the fiscal year on a pro rata basis.For the past three years at least, the Bar has been able to pay all claims up to $50,000, although in the past there has been pro rata payments on amounts over $25,000. This year, the Bar may not have enough, depending on how many claims are approved in the next couple months, to pay all the claims up to $25,000, much less any over that amount, without going into reserves.(There are limits on who can claim reimbursement from the fund, such as the Bar does not compensate institutional or business clients and stolen funds must be related to legal work stemming from an attorney-client relationship, such as funds or property held in trust by the lawyer as part of a lawsuit or legal transaction. It does not cover losses, for example, if the victims were participating in an investment scheme with the lawyer and hence were more like business partners than clients.)“We don’t have enough money in the Clients’ Security Fund for this year’s claims, separate and apart from the reserves,” Coleman said, adding that situation won’t improve anytime soon.“There are catastrophic claims out there or potentially down the road,” he said. “We’re looking at the entire process generically.”Coleman said Bar staff is preparing several options for the task force, which plans to craft a plan and present it to board committees in time for action at the May meeting.Lori Holcomb, director of the Clients’ Security Fund, said there seems to be more cases where one attorney causes numerous filings.“What I’m seeing is we’re getting a lot of multiple claims on the same attorney. Instead of getting one on attorney A, and two on attorney B, and four on attorney C, we’re getting 30 on attorney A,” she said. “In the past that was more of an exception than the rule. It seems like we’re seeing it more now.”Among the options being prepared, Holcomb said, is to pay all claims at the end of the budget year, and then pay them pro rata depending on how much money is available in the fund. That would include removing the $25,000/$50,000 payment ceiling.Under that scenario, if the repayment rate was set at 30 cents on the dollar, someone with an approved $1 million claim would get $300,000 but someone with a $25,000 claim – who previously would have been paid in full – would get $7,500.Another plan is to hold all payments to the end of the fiscal year, but then pay them according to the current $25,000/$50,000 reimbursement cap. Yet another option is to pay claims for fees paid for no services out of a separate fund, reserving most of the Clients’ Security Fund for repayment of stolen client trust funds.One change is already in the works to help the fund. In the Bar’s 2009-10 budget, which the board approved earlier in the meeting, the board approved increasing the portion of each lawyer’s annual membership fees to be allocated to the fund from $20 to $25 (the maximum allowed under Bar rules).

Chambers in discussions to scale back offices

first_imgBarristers’ chambers are considering downsizing their offices in the wake of coronavirus to cut costs and encourage more remote working. However, the Bar Council has stressed the importance of physical space for career support and wellbeing.The Gazette understands that at least two London sets are in discussions about scaling back their premises. Individual offices are expected to be replaced by communal hot desks and barristers will be encouraged to work from home. More space may also be allocated for client meetings.Amanda Pinto QC, chair of the Bar Council, said there may be ‘immediate advantages’ to downsizing, such as lower costs and greater flexibility for barristers with caring responsibilities.‘However, those advantages will need to be balanced against the very important role a physical chambers plays in all barristers’ careers: chambers provides training, support and career development, all of which are harder to foster at a distance,’ she said.‘This is especially so for those at the junior end and pupils, where chambers’ help is essential to establishing and developing a practice. Chambers is a great support for barristers not just by sharing professional expertise and friendship, but with wellbeing and mental health issues too. None of these advantages should be compromised in any moves towards alternative ways of working.’The pandemic has placed severe pressure on some barristers’ sets and the Bar Council has urged the Treasury to extend business rates exemption relief to cover chambers. Counsel have also been asked to lobby their local MP’s for greater financial support.last_img read more

Arsenal given boost in hunt for centre-back – Club prepared to…

first_imgThat’s according to SportBild, who say Leipzig have decided to accept €20m less than Upamecano’s €60m asking price this summer to ensure they get something for their man should he leave.The newspaper explains that it is widely expected Upamecano will leave the club in the coming transfer window, with several sides in Europe all keen on his signature, Arsenal among them.The German club knew he would attract interest when they signed him in 2017 and installed a €100m release clause in a contract he signed in 2018.pp, that dropped to €60m last summer, and they have decided to reduce it by a further €20m to ensure they can get money for the defender this summer.Why? Because Upamecano’s contract is running out next season and they fear he will continue at the club for another year, with him able to negotiate a free transfer away as early as January.At the moment none of his suitors, like Arsenal, Real Madrid or Bayern Munich are willing to pay his €60m release clause, so the club have decided to offer him cheaper in an attempt to bring his suitors to the table.Ideally, Leipzig would like to extend Upamecano’s contract and install a new release clause for next summer, say around €40m, but so far the Frenchman has refused to do so.Thus, they have taken the drastic step of reducing his price in the hope that someone will be willing to pay it and ensure they do not miss out on a significant profit.This backs up a report from France Football from the end of April stating €40m would be enough to ‘buy the last year of his deal’.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameBuild a City, Trade With Your Neighbors, Play With Your FriendsForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoHero WarsGetting this Treasure is impossible!

Review: ‘Movie Nights’ memoir connects Reagans to ’80s films

first_imgThe screenings offered the Reagans an opportunity to stay in touch with what had been the family business. Reagan began his film career in the late 1930s and was more successful than his political critics would give him credit. Nancy Davis first appeared on-screen in 1949 but may have found her true calling supporting her husband’s ambitions. Most of all, however, movies at Camp David offered the former actors the same kind of escape most people seek in a dark theater.“He didn’t screen movies based on their ideology. That’s not what our movie nights were about,” Mark Weinberg observes in a modest memoir about his years as an aide to the president. “Movie nights were a diversion from the business of governing — or the business of campaigning — and a chance for the Reagans to relax and enjoy the art form that brought them together in the first place.”“Movie Nights with the Reagans” adds valuable touches to the warm personal images of the Reagans already established elsewhere. The president wasn’t too busy to call Weinberg into the Oval Office to return a pen he had borrowed a few days earlier. He wasn’t too big to tell the movie group that he was sorry for a crack he’d made the night before about Weinberg sounding like a communist while discussing the Soviet invasion film “Red Dawn” (1984). And the president never appeared unhappy to meet a member of his staff’s family. Such personal moments are more telling and compelling than many of the public ones Weinberg revisits as he tries — sometimes too hard — to connect the films the Reagans watched to the Reagans themselves. “The Untouchables” (1987) becomes a platform to discuss the president’s distaste for organized crime. “On Golden Pond” (1981) prompts Weinberg to speculate about whether it might have led Reagan to think about his difficult relationship with his daughter Patti. Reagan found inspiration in “Chariots of Fire” (1981), and Weinberg uses the film to discuss Reagan’s affection for British culture as well as his relationship with British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and the royal family.There are too few instances in which Weinberg can offer meaningful memories of the Reagans commenting on a film, a disappointment given the book’s title. One worth noting: Both were unhappy with the pot smoking in the comedy “9 to 5” (1980) and Mrs. Reagan even referenced it in her “just say no” campaign against drug use. On the other hand, Weinberg provides enough anecdotes away from the screenings to give his book an insider’s vibe and to add to our understanding of Reagan the man if not Reagan the fan.Weinberg says the Reagans screened more than 360 films in their eight years in Washington. They preferred those that were light, humorous and fun — “Raiders of the Lost Ark” (1981) and “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” (1986) were among their favorites — and had little to say for one driven by violence and sex. Even as the industry changed, the president remained a fan of the lively art that gave him a career and the skills to communicate his vision for the nation’s future.Douglass K.

(Simon & Schuster via AP) “Movie Nights with the Reagans: A Memoir” (Simon & Schuster), by Mark WeinbergThe Aspen Movie Club may well have been the most exclusive gathering of its kind. Most weekend nights in the 1980s, its members appeared at 8 o’clock at Aspen Lodge, the presidential residence at Camp David, Maryland, to watch a film. The hosts were Ronald and Nancy Reagan, the guests were their staff and others on hand.last_img read more

Bridesmaid revisited

first_imgTop of the leaderboard at Plutaluang was Charlie Cox who continued his good form of late and finished on 38 points, just beating Derek Thorogood who finished with the same score, on count back.  Our marathon man Richard Talbot took third spot with a very commendable 35 points after his recent handicap cut.1st Charlie Cox (17) 38pts2nd Derek Thorogood (15) 38pts3rd Richard Talbot (16) 35ptsWednesday, August 6, The Emerald – StablefordOn Wednesday it was off to a fairly damp Emerald where they had had quite a downpour the previous evening.  It did not prevent some pretty impressive winning scores, with my playing partner Roger Wilkinson showing the rest the way home with a remarkable 39 points.  He only just made it to No.1 after a count back, beating Monday’s winner Charlie Cox into second place.Now our blushing bridesmaid must have thought this was going to be his day when he returned with 38 points but our Derek had to be content with third place.1st Roger Wilkinson (12) 39pts2nd Charlie Cox (16) 39pts3rd Derek Thorogood (14) 38ptsFriday, August 8, Eastern Star – StablefordThe week ended for the TRGG on Friday with a trip over to Eastern Star where Daryl Ottaway rounded off a high scoring week with first place on 38 points.  It was tears before bedtime once again for Derek Thorogood who missed out on top spot for the third time this week.  Charlie Cox got a mention in dispatches, again finishing in the top three for the third time this week.  Well done Charlie and better luck next time Derek.Daryl Ottaway – winner at Emerald1st Daryl Ottaway (6) 38pts2nd Derek Thorogood (14) 34pts3rd Charlie Cox (15) 33ptsGood luck to all you golfers for the coming week and if you would like to play a round of golf with the TRGG please phone Fergus Brennan on 086 056 7019 or pop into the Ned Kelly Bar in Soi Lengkee and add your name to the weekly lists which are posted on the notice board. Travellers Rest Golf GroupMonday, August 4, Plutaluang – StablefordIt’s exactly 100 years since the start of the First World War for the Brits.  Life was never quite the same again as the lamps went out all over Europe and many thousands of people would never see them lit again.  So on Monday morning it was perhaps a moment to pause for thought and reflect for a while on how different things might have been for so many poor souls and their families.  A sobering thought indeed.Derek Thorogood in his bridesmaid’s gown.Step forward 100 years and the patrons of the TRGG had nothing further going through their minds than the battle about to take place at the Navy Golf Course at Plutaluang (East and South courses).  Now last week in my report I spoke about Derek Thorogood complaining that he always seemed to end up as the bridesmaid, always getting pipped at the post for first place.  Well this week he could be seen to have a point as he finished second twice and third once.  When I caught up with him crying in his beer and asked him for his thoughts he asked me to go forth and I didn’t quite catch the end of his sentence.  So I complemented him on his dress (see photo) and left.last_img read more
