Lathigee holds Lathigee holds Alberta Lawyer Accountable and Lawyer Submits Resignation

We are heartened with the findings of the Law Society of Alberta brought against Malcolm Lennie QC.

Mike Lathigee fought for years to hold Malcolm Lennie QC accountable for his actions.  Malcolm Lennie was a lawyer representing several of Mr Lathigee’ s companies.

Through the course of proceeding it has become clear that Malcolm Lennie (acting as counsel on behalf of Mr Lathigee and his companies) committed a number of unethical acts deliberately detrimental to Mr Lathigee’s companies (detailed elsewhere on this website).

Not only did Mr Lathigee companies receive a settlement in excess of $1 million from Mr Lennie but, based on the information uncovered through this case and other files of Mr Lennie, the Alberta Law Society also accepted Mr Lennie’s resignation – as a direct result of these proceedings (the resignation was submitted to the Law Society of Alberta).

This closes a long battle against this (now) disgraced lawyer. Not only with the settlement but also with the result that Malcolm Lennie is no longer able to practice law.

This decision reflects our ongoing efforts to provide disclosure (and truth) with respect to the events leading up to, and subsequent to, the conditions in which the FIC Group of Companies (of which Mr Lathigee was CEO) was forced into receivership – in 2008.
