BUD BURRELL'S ATTORNEY FINED $591,000 IN BOILER ROOM SCAM. PRIVATE TRADING SYSTEMS ATTORNEY HELPED OUT SPANISH BOILER ROOMS
------------------------------------------------------


May 13 (Bloomberg) -- The founding partner of a London law firm will be fined 400,000 pounds ($591,000) for aiding a multimillion-pound illegal share scam, Britain’s Financial Services Authority said today in a statement.

Andrew Greystock, a former investment banker at NM Rothschild & Sons Ltd. and senior partner of Atlantic Law LLP, will also be banned by the FSA from working in financial services for signing off on advertising from four Spanish firms that were boiler rooms, the FSA said. Around 130 British consumers lost a total of 3 million pounds in the scam, according to the regulator.

May 13 (Bloomberg) -- The founding partner of a London law firm will be fined 400,000 pounds ($591,000) for aiding a multimillion-pound illegal share scam, Britain’s Financial Services Authority said today in a statement.

Andrew Greystock, a former investment banker at NM Rothschild & Sons Ltd. and senior partner of Atlantic Law LLP, will also be banned by the FSA from working in financial services for signing off on advertising from four Spanish firms that were boiler rooms, the FSA said. Around 130 British consumers lost a total of 3 million pounds in the scam, according to the regulator.

“Firms and individuals that assist boiler room operators should be brought to task,” said Margaret Cole, the FSA’s enforcement director. “It will send a strong message of deterrence to other firms and individuals that may be tempted to turn a blind eye to the legitimacy of their clients in exchange for fees or commission.”

The U.K. has been trying to crack down on boiler rooms, which defraud Britons out of at least 200 million pounds a year, according to FSA data. Boiler rooms are illegal brokerages, often based overseas and beyond the reach of the regulators, which target investors with high-pressure sales pitches to buy risky and typically worthless shares.

The FSA is able to levy the penalty after Greystock lost a legal challenge at a London tribunal. Greystock wasn’t immediately available to comment.

Fox Hayes, a century-old law firm now in administration, had to pay a 954,770-pound fine last year in a separate case after the FSA found it approved promotions linked to a $21 million share scam.
