Peter Dempsey, Solicitor, Cubism Law, London


Peter Dempsey, Irish barrister, practicing as a solicitor with Cubism Law in London and inscribed at the Paris Bar.

Peter was formerly a tax partner at Pricewaterhouse Cooper (PwC) in various countries, having commenced his career at PwC Dublin and was first admitted as a partner in Ireland in 1989. In 2013 he uncovered suspicious matters at his then law firm in London. Receiving no answers but various threats, he made a report to the legal regulator (SRA), HMRC and the Police. A number of other lawyers also reported suspicions about the same individual. In retaliation the individual whom Peter reported has pursued (so far) six legal proceedings against Peter, in England and France, the most recent being launched in November 2018. Meanwhile the SRA prosecuted the suspect before the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal, and in April 2018 they were found guilty of multiple counts of serious dishonesty and misconduct, and struck off the roll.
