A senior City lawyer who told a client to "burn" chat logs to prevent evidence reaching Ocado could face prison for contempt of court.
A senior lawyer has been found in contempt of court after telling a client to “burn” its secure communications system to avoid handing evidence to supermarket group Ocado. A High Court judge ruled on Wednesday that Raymond McKeeve acted “with the precise intention” of preventing a search of electronic data at a company founded by one of Ocado’s co-founders despite an order to preserve evidence as part of a corporate espionage probe. McKeeve, a former partner at the US law firm Jones Day, was advising Today Development Partners, which was set up by Ocado co-founder Jonathan Faiman.
