UK law firms hired corrupt private investigators

August 3, 2013 A UK investigation into a network of corrupt private detectives who were jailed last year has revealed that law firms account for a fifth of the group’s clients.

The investigators - who have been found guilty of hacking and stealing information - had 102 clients, including 22 law firms.

MPs have released a detailed break-down of the group’s client list, though the names of the responsible client companies remain confidential. Commentators are calling for a release of the full details of client companies and firms, but a spokesperson has indicated that the names will remain confidential until the investigation is complete.
