Victoria Brown was jailed and banned from working in the legal profession after stealing £400,000 from Clyde & Co
A management consultant has been convicted of fraud by false representation, banned from working in the legal profession and jailed for three-and-a-half years after stealing £400,000 from Clyde & Co. She was also ordered to pay £3,200 in costs. Victoria Brown was an assistant management accountant at the firm. After concerns arose, an investigation identified 134 suspect payments made by Brown from the office account between 2011 and 2017. Clyde & Co has now commenced civil proceedings.
