Cameron Fyfe declared bankrupt in Ross Harper aftermath
Prominent litigation lawyer Cameron Fyfe has been declared bankrupt on his own application, due to debts relating to the failed firm of Ross Harper of which he was formerly a partner.
As a result his practising certificate has been automatically suspended, but he is able to apply to the Law Society of Scotland to have it restored.
Mr Fyfe left Ross Harper in November 2010 and subsequently became a consultant at Drummond Miller in Glasgow, but remained liable for debts of around £140,000, including property rental and tax liabilities, at his former firm, which ceased trading early in 2012.
Ross Harper is still being wound up under judicial factors appointed on an application to the Court of Session by the Law Society of Scotland. Two other former partners, Joseph Mullen and Paul McHolland, have also been made bankrupt.
