The former disputes paralegal submitted claim forms using the initials of a former manager.

Catherine Margaret Hunt submitted nine overtime claims which amounted to 260 hours of overtime claims.

HSF became concerned over the unusually high overtime claims. The claim forms were signed ‘AL’ which are the initials of her former manager,

who confirmed they had not approved the overtime claimed.

The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) have made Catherine Hunt subject to a section 43 order, which will prevent her from working

in a law firm without the SRA’s prior permission.
