According to The Law Society Gazette, Malcolm Grumbridge was “found guilty of a string of rule breaches” in December 2020. According to James Hurley in The Times this week, Grumbridge “has been a mysterious figure during his more than four-decade legal and business career… [who has been] at the heart of the Maxwells’ opaque finances, setting up and owning companies on behalf of the brothers Kevin and Ian Maxwell.”

 

A solicitor since 1978 but now removed from the roll, former sole practitioner Grumbridge – whom established around 150 companies in total – transferred a cash gift from a client to his personal account, “without the client being advised to take any independent legal advice.” He also was slammed for not accurately maintaining books, making inter-client loans without proper written authority and took cash withdrawals from client bank accounts in favour of himself.

 

Though the Solicitors Regulation Authority deemed Grumbridge’s conduct “serious enough to merit a fine of between £25,000 and £50,000,” this was “reduced to £2,000 [plus £1,350 in costs) on the basis of the admissions made at an early stage, Grumbridge’s ill health and his co-operation with the investigation.”

 

Summing up, “the SRA found [the solicitor] had ‘failed to behave in a way that maintains the trust the public places in him,’ which they described as ‘reckless,’” The Chiswick Calendar this week remarked.

 

Listed on the same page as a number for Scotland Yard in the infamous Ghislaine Maxwell – Jeffrey Epstein ‘little black book’ with a total of seven phone numbers – indicating his clear importance to the pugnacious pair – London, W4 based Grumbridge also “acted as a custodian of the house where Prince Andrew allegedly had sex with one of Jeffrey Epstein’s victims” and “set up multiple companies for the Maxwell family,” The Times also reported.

 

‘The Times’ has published their latest investigation into the Maxwell family’s curious business links over several days this week.
Malcolm Grumbridge’s entry in the Ghislaine Maxwell – Jeffrey Epstein ‘little black book’ includes seven telephone numbers, an address and an email also.
‘The Times’ this week suggested that Malcolm Grumbridge acted as “custodian” of 44 Kinnerton Street (AKA ‘Mucky Madam Ghislaine Maxwell’s Bathtub Bonk Pad’), Belgravia, London, SW1X 8ES, United Kingdom on behalf of the Maxwells family.
The Maxwell family’s curious ‘network’ of associates and supporters currently also includes the PR peddler Brian Basham, the supposed ‘writer’ for ‘Politicalite’ Jay Beecher and the “memory lapsed” moron once accused of shoplifting, Richard Madeley.
As her trial in November approaches – if it actually happens this time round – Ghislaine Maxwell’s decidedly weird world continues to unravel. Her curious associations continue to be exposed and theories about her links to espionage, grubby business deals, rotten royalty and pugnacious politicians will now, more than ever, come to the fore.

  • This guy as the Trustee of a "well connected" peer2peer financing (now bond) company was a massive red flag back in late 2013.

    My colleague and I were told to "look away" at the time... Funnily enough, he appeared on my LinkedIn suggestions shortly afterwards.
