The Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal (SDT) has cleared a Bath-based solicitor of overcharging allegations. Derwent William Moger Campbell, the former managing partner of Mogers Drewett Solicitors, was accused of overcharging the estate of a deceased person. However, the SDT found the allegations 'not proved' and ordered they be dismissed with no costs being made to Campbell. The decision to prosecute Campbell was made by the Solicitors Regulation Authority on 3 July 2018. He was cleared after SDT hearings on 21 and 22 November 2019 and 20 January 2020. 31 January
